Food Pairings for Olivier Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet
Chevalier-Montrachet is the highest of the Montrachet vineyards and is located above Montrachet proper. The only grape variety allowed in the AOC is Chardonnay. A small percentage of Pinot Blanc is permissible in other AOCs. The color of the wine is gold flecked with emerald, darkening towards yellow with age. The bouquet evokes butter and warm croissants, bracken, dried fruit, spices and honey. Body and bouquet are not separately distinguishable, so closely blended are structure and harmony into a single perfect whole. Unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, enveloped and profound, these wines combine every virtue in a firmly-established personality. - BIVB
