シュヴァリエ モンラッシェ グラン クリュ ドメーヌ ルフレーヴ(白ワイン)[tp][S]
■burghound.com 67号より抜粋■Producer note: I tasted this time with director Brice de La Morandiere along with new regisseur (estate manager) Pierre Vincent who was hired away from Domaine de la Vougeraie (see below). They told me that 2015 'gave us a very hot and mostly dry growing season that produced excellent maturities. There wasn't much disease pressure to speak of other than some early season oidium pressure. We chose to begin picking on the 28th of August which was the second earliest date ever along with 2003 and 2011. The fruit was basically spotless with good but not excessive ripeness and moderate potential alcohols. The acidities were also solid if not high and in hindsight I think that beginning the harvest when we did was the key to preserving not only the acidities but also the freshness levels. Most domaines started picking around the 3rd or the 4th of September and having started a week earlier than that, in the end, turned out to be the right decision for us. As to the wines, they're clearly the product of a warm vintage and they are certainly rich yet they are fresh, vibrant and offer the possibility of enjoying them younger than is perhaps typical for our wines.' I have to agree with La Morandiere that the Leflaive 2015s are unusually fresh and vibrant in the context of what is typical for the vintage.

Tasting note: This offers the most elegant nose in the range with its cool, pure and airy array that is composed by notes of essence of pear, white flowers, spice, jasmine tea and citrus zest nuances. There is outstanding volume, power and concentration to the focused, intense and palate coating broad-shouldered flavors that despite the imposing scale remain highly refined and particularly so on the markedly mineral-driven and explosively long finish. This won't be the finest Chevalier that Leflaive has ever produced but it is a terrific effort for the vintage.
