The nose was a bit reductive and while it improved, it never fully cleared itself up. Which was too bad, because the fruits were ripe, concentrated, energetic, luscious and really helped reinforce the crushed rock elements that were showing well.

Really nice wine here, with good freshness, purity of fruit, minerality and a concentrated, buttery, fleshy character. It's still holding much of its essence in reserve.

Vanilla, smoke, citrus oil, minerality, lemon zest and floral scents open to a soft textured, silky, round, medium bodied, ripe expression of Chardonnay that is already showing well.

This is a really pretty wine, with depth of flavor, concentration, rich texture and freshness. The ripe, sweet citrus notes and minerality really carry through from start to finish.

In the nose, the wine offers a stong citrus, stone and beeswax aromatic. The wine is powerful, but it lacks charm and elegance. This is a hard, masculine, steely style of wine that reminds me of 86 Bordeaux. While well made, it lacks pleasure. I wonder how this would fare in a blind tasting?

Leflaive Chevalier Montrachet was too steely for my taste. Very focused with a lot of acidity, and bright citrus flavors. Others liked it more than I did.
