  • Burghound, June 2017, Score: 95-97

    This was sufficiently reduced at the time of my visit that it was aromatically unreadable other than to say that the underlying fruit seems notably ripe. Otherwise, there is both good freshness and vibrancy to the imposingly constituted flavors that, like the Chevalier, manage to retain an unequalled grace and refinement on the gorgeously persistent finish where a hint of wood surfaces. This is quite firmly structured, partially thanks to the impressively deep reserves of dry extract but also because of the very firm citrus-tinged acidity and between the two, this beauty should age for a very long time.

  • Stephen Tanzer, June 2016, Score: 93-95

    (tiny berries here yielded just 27 hectoliters per hectare, according to Rémy): Bright, light yellow. Rich, ripe aromas of lemon, peach, butter and clove. Fat and rich but at the same time bright and dry, conveying a distinctly salty quality to the flavors of stone fruits and smoky minerality. Less silky and more powerful than the Chevalier-Montrachet, not to mention highly concentrated. Finishes very long, with strong soil tones.

"One of the greatest white wine domaines in Burgundy" remarked Clive Coates. Doamine Leflaive's vineyards in Puligny Montrachet are steeped in history and the current generation can look back to 1717 for the first Leflaive family occupation of the farm buildings that they use today. The domaine was founded by Joseph Leflaive, who came to Burgundy in 1905. Anne-Claude Leflaive, the granddaughter of Joseph was appointed to run the domaine in 1990. A fervent proponent of biodynamic viticulture, Anne-Claude converted the domaine to biodynamics. After her untimely death in 2015, Brice de La Morandiere's, Anne-Claude's nephew and great grand son of Joseph Leflaive took on the mantle. He upholds the terroir-orientated, sustainable winemaking philosophy of the family.Read less

Region

Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous white Burgundy Grand Cru coming from a single 8 hectare vineyard which overlaps into the communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Even as far back as the 18th century the wines of Le Montrachet had to be reserved a year in advance - a distant precursor to the en primeur system. The south east facing vineyards give the vines maximum exposure to the sun which combined with the limestone soil produces epic results.
