2011 Domaine Leflaive

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
Sub-district Bourgogne Blanc

Outstanding! (includes some declassified villages wine). A very pretty and reasonably complex nose features notes of citrus peel, white flower and peach aromas. There is good vibrancy to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess good verve and better than average depth and length. This should be very good and is worth a look.
86/100 (Sep 2013)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Very floral -- a bouquet already! Blossomy. Neat and chalky finish. Only medium intensity but very well balanced. No hurry to drink.

The very earliest roots of Leflaive date back to 1717 with Claude Leflaive of Puligny Montrachet, however the founder of the domaine more directly related to that of today is Joseph Leflaive. Originally a marine engineer, Leflaive was part of the team that designed and created the first French submarine. It was his marriage that then changed his career into the wine trade, when he started looking after the family vineyards. Since 1990 Anne-Claude Leflaive has been co-gérant of the domaine, and took the vineyard down the biodynamic route. Domaine Leflaive covers 22 hectares, 10 of which are Premier Crus, and 5 Grands Crus.
