- Bright yellow. Crystallized lemon peel, licorice and stony minerality on the nose. Dense but juicy on entry
- Turns creamier and silkier with aeration. Best from 2013 through 2022
- Shows elegance and precision
Tasting Notes -+
Nose this white evokes nut oil, smoke, butterscotch, peach, melon and spice flavors. Still a bit raw and unformed, with a long expansive finish.
Palate The Chevalier possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous balance as it wraps around the palate in stunning style. Leflaive's parcels are located on the higher parts of the slope.
Food Pairing Shellfish, Crab and Lobster.
Cellaring 5-10 Years
Notes An ultra-pure and high-toned nose of mineral-based reduction, spiced pear and acacia blossom gives way to overtly stony and quite finely detailed broad-shouldered flavors that despite their significant size and weight, are crystalline in their transparency. This very much seems to be built on a base of liquid limestone with impeccable balance and flat out stunning persistence. This is a "wow" wine of both volume and finesse that will definitely age as the acid support is very firm, particularly for the vintage, in fact the intensity of the finish is almost painful
