Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2020,
    Score: 93-95

    Here the nose is more expressive and more elegant than it usually is at this early point with its cool citrus and broad range of floral elements that include rose petal, acacia and lilac along with subtle oak and spice wisps. The restrained, concentrated and enveloping larger-scaled flavors possess evident power and muscle, both of which become ever more apparent on the palate coating finish that goes on and on. This is a big but not massive Bâtard that should age gracefully over a 12 to 15 year cellaring horizon. Drink 2030+

Producer

Domaine Leflaive

"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.

Region

Bâtard Montrachet

Bâtard-Montrachet is a great white Grand Cru in Burgundy's Côte D'or. Its vineyards are located onthe slope beneath Le Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune. Bâtard-Montrachet's soils are heavier than those surrounding it, made up of brown limestone and gravel, which pave the way for rich, nutty, honeyed and heady wines with good structure. They are not as elegant as those from Chevalier-Montrachet and are broader and weightier than wines from Montrachet.
