Full-bodied, satiny and incisive, its textural attack segues into an ample, youthfully tightly wound mid-palate girdled by racy acids and underpinned by chalky structuring extract.- WK

There is a mildly leesy note to the more floral and even spicier aromas though given that this is not yet in bottle, I suspect that the leesy note will dissipate once this is prepared for the bottling. As is virtually always the case, there is more size, weight and richness to the bigger-bodied flavors that possess plenty of power if not the same refinement, all wrapped in a more complex finale where the only nit is a touch of warmth. In 2018, this is more Montrachet than Chevalier in character.
