Way too advanced. Apple and gold. On the palate pretty good- fresher than it smells. But this is on the turn. Really not right given how much these cost.

One of the greatest wines I have ever enjoyed red or white. Rich yet zesty, sizzling yet abundantly fruited, chiseled yet tender ... Perfume like aromas: apple and pear, exotic woods, vanilla, cream, beeswax, toasted brioche, raw earth, wet stone, wild flowers and Lemon Curd... it was sensory overload - an explosion of nuance - The richness gave way to the acidity; The structure gave way to the terroir and yet the Riches was still there as was the acid as was the terroir on an on and on - perfection!!! Served out of 3 L at Gwen restaurant on Sunset Blvd during the "best bottle" dinner hosted by wineLA on February 8, 2017. 100 points drink now through the rest of your life time.... I do hope to try this again someday somewhere.

Nice focus. Turned beautiful after two hours in the glass.

Sadly premoxed. Not undrinkable but what the heck?

2007 Domaine Leflaive Chevalier Montrachet. BBQ at the house while B&M Sh were visiting. Such a treat. Great- almost surprisingly so. Was slightly concerned since some of these wines have the pre-mox issue. This bottle was perfect.
