  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    Shows an inner sense of power rather than sheer size, developing peach, lemon, baking spice and mineral flavors. Vivid and long, with a persistent aftertaste.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Subdued but pure aromas of pineapple, crushed rock and white flowers; less fruity today than the Bienvenue or Batard. Then fat and ripe but with terrific verve to the mineral and spice flavors. With a few minutes in the glass, this highly concentrated, electric wine came across as more tightly coiled, with its energy and cut becoming more apparent. Most impressive today on the extremely long, perfumed back end, which leaves the palate vibrating under a layer of mineral dust. Winemaker Remy says he wouldn't start drinking this wine for 12 years.

    Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Anne-Claude Leflaive's Chevalier-Montrachet 2011 is bestowed with a crystalline bouquet, reticent at first, but then unfurling with subtle mineral notes, licorice, spice and flint aromas. The palate is clean and fresh with crisp acidity. There is more tension here than in Philippe Colin's Chevalier, with a citric core of fruit, although it needs more delineation and minerality on the rather muscular finish. That will surely develop with commensurate bottle age.

  • "If the blessed slopes of the Cote d'Or are home to the ultimate expression of Chardonnay, then Anne-Claude Leflaive could be regarded as the magician, some might use the word "shaman", who can conjure wine like no other from this propitious terroir." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
