Decanter über: Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru

-- Decanter: Leflaive owns a comparatively large 1.8ha in Chevalier, running from the bottom to the top of the grand cru, so it's normally made in two separate lots. The oak needs a little more time to integrate, but this is another stellar performance by the legendary domaine. It's saline and elegant yet with understated richness and concentration - a world-class wine from a world-class vineyard. 97/100


Parker über: Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru

-- Parker: The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru delivers a vibrant but reserved bouquet of lemon zest, white flowers and crushed chalk that is still some distance from displaying all its breadth of expression. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and tensile, with a tight-knit core, searingly intense chalky extract and an electric sense of energy, concluding with a long finish. This is the most linear Chevaliers I tasted in the 2017 vintage, which was typically somewhat more open at the same stage in Anne-Claude's day, so it will be interesting to see how much plenitude it displays in bottle. 95-97/100


Galloni über: Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru

-- Galloni: Precise, high-pitched scents of lemon and lime ice and crushed rock. The palate communicates outstanding stony, limey intensity that's accentuated by an impression of strong acidity. But despite its penetrating cut and low pH (3.15, according to Pierre Vincent), the wine's spine is covered by adequate flesh, even in the early going. Flavors of pineapple and liquid stone are complicated by bracing citricity and a salty element on the slowly rising, palate-staining, utterly gripping finish. 93-96/100
