Tasting Notes

Burghound, February 2011, Score: 93-96

An ultra-pure and high-toned nose of wet stone, spiced pear and acacia blossom gives way to even stonier and quite finely detailed broad-shouldered flavors that despite their significant size and weight, are crystalline in their transparency. This very much seems to be built on a base of liquid limestone with impeccable balance and flat out stunning persistence. This is a "wow" wine that will definitely age as the acid support is very firm, particularly for the vintage. Drink: 2019+.

Producer

Domaine Leflaive

"One of the greatest white wine domaines in Burgundy" remarked Clive Coates.The vineyards steeped in history, the current generation - Anne-Claude Leflaive - can look back to 1717 for the first Leflaive family occupation of the farm buildings that they use today. The domaine was created by Anne-Claude's grandfather, Joseph, who came to Burgundy in 1905. Anne-Claudecontinues the legacy with new vigour and particular attention to biodynamics. In 1997 Anne-Claud took the whole domaine fully biodynamic, after very successful blind tastings the year before, comparing biodynamically produced wine and organic wine from adjacent vines.

Region
