An open floral bouquet melds into in sweet fruit white flowers and the essence of crushed rocks. 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. 2019+.-Antonio Galloni

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.

Bright yellow. Crystallized lemon peel licorice and stony minerality on the nose. Dense but juicy on entry then concentrated and brisk in the middle with penetrating flavors of yellow fruits minerals and crushed stone. ... Bright yellow. Crystallized lemon peel licorice and stony minerality on the nose. Dense but juicy on entry then concentrated and brisk in the middle with penetrating flavors of yellow fruits minerals and crushed stone. Powerfully built but quite tight today; not as broad as the Batard but boasts terrific verve for the year. A distinctly vertical style of wine that gives an impression of strong sucrosite and firm acidity almost in the style of a 2008. Wonderfully harmonious wine in the making but lay it down.

Broad and muscular this white evokes nut oil smoke butterscotch peach melon and spice flavors. Still a bit raw and unformed with a long expansive finish. Turns creamier and silkier with aeration. Best from 2013 through... Broad and muscular this white evokes nut oil smoke butterscotch peach melon and spice flavors. Still a bit raw and unformed with a long expansive finish.
