2017 Maison Olivier Leflaive Montrachet Grand Cru (Previously $900)

SKU #1443719 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of citrus oil, white currants, fresh peach, tangerine, freshly baked bread and a nicely integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with striking reserves of concentration, racy acids and compelling amplitude without weight. While this is still quite youthfully primary, it's a superb Montrachet that lives up to the reputation of this great vineyard. Bottled under Diam 10, it's built to reward some bottle age. (WK) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lime blossom and toasty aromas introduce this rich yet racy white. Lemon, peach, vanilla and butterscotch flavors are backed by the vivid structure. Balanced, with a long, lemon-, butterscotch- and mineral-tinged finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This legendary appellation delivers wonderful precision and depth in 2017 with a wonderful balance of fruit and acidity in a full-bodied package. Shows complexity and hand-crafted precision. Persistent and cool. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A gorgeously fresh, airy and cool nose combines notes of green apple, white flowers, wet stone and a highly appealing array of spice elements are trimmed in just enough wood influence to notice. As one would reasonably expect, there is markedly more volume, power and muscle to the broad-shouldered flavors that exude a subtle minerality that also suffuses the tightly coiled, intense and wonderfully long finish. Like the BBM, this isn't super-dense but the balance and overall sense of harmony are already very much in place. Patience required but that is a given for Montrachet. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

97 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Full colour, powerful, some green tints to an otherwise full colour. Fills the mouth as it should but it is really at the back that it kicks on, with several waves of flavour. This does have an extra element over its neighbouring grands crus. A little bit of orange blossom is in evidence without losing freshness. Huge persistence, bravo! Tasted: October 2018."
