Domaine Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1996

$995

The 1996 Chevalier-Montrachet displays massive ripeness in its fresh marzipan and honeysuckle aromatics. Flavors of silica, grilled nuts, sun-baked stones, straw, hops, and limes can be found in this hyper-focused wine. Its medium-to-full body is magnificently balanced and precise, yet broad, thick, and rich. This is a fabulously elegant offering that combines brawny power with elegance and class... Bravo!

This is a beautiful bottle. Mint, flint, a whiff of sulfur, jasmine. On the palate this is extraordinary. Fresh and vibrant with secondary notes of sweetness and tangy preserved lemon. Hugely complex but very integrated ad complete, and long. Fantastic

Epic with fresh white flowers wet stones stone fruits gives way to terrific freshness and intensity. In the mouth lemon and saline dominate with loads of dry extract and a whip lash of a finish with some toffee notes lingering saline lemon and touch of honey . A great wine !

From a perfect looking bottle bought 10 years ago in Paris at Caves de Taillevant where it was stored since release. Yellow gold color. Lemon, citrus, allspice, petrol, wet stone notes in the mouth. Huge acidity and structure in the mouth with great fruit. Overwhelming impact makes your face flush with the first big sip. Very long finish. My epiphany white burg wine many years ago delivers once again. Will certainly improve with another decade of age.

Light gold. Nose of bright sweet fruit, stone, petrol, honeysuckle and white flower. Huge in the mouth. Expansive. Breathtaking. With air, a butter popcorn nose. At peak but will last.

In a very good spot combining great primary and secondary qualities. Candied lemon and strong mineral components.

Full of energy. Vibrant fruit and minerality. Butterscotch notes start to emerge with an hour or so in a decanter.
