Description

At Domaine Leflaive the grape makes the wine. The precious Chardonnay grapes and the soil in which its vines are planted are tended with care and diligence. Every parcel has a unique soil structure and the terroir of each becomes its own individual expression of its origin through the wine itself. The health of the harvest determines the wine’s quality. A biodynamic approach is implemented here where the method of cultivation is based on the sensitive intelligence of natural phenomenon. Not a method of control, but rather one that favors the life of an important number of species and makes it possible to keep the vine’s enemies at a tolerable level. It is a mutual respect for both terroir and the natural environment of the vineyards.

Inside each bottle of Domaine Leflaive with its unimpressive and unassuming label exists a wine of such complexity, opulence and elegance. It is not just a Chardonnay, or a white Burgundy, but a peek inside the enormity of Leflaive’s historical contributions to the region. Each wine is a living, breathing legend that speaks of the vision, incredible foresight, and determination of Joseph Leflaive, allowing his legacy to live on.

“Smoky aromas of petrol, citrus confit and spicy pear lead to racy, elegant and more refined medium weight flavors that at once fine but dense, all wrapped in a solidly lengthy and beautifully well-balanced finale. This is already developing fine complexity and it has all it needs to reward up to a decade of keeping.”
-Allen Meadows- Burghound, 90-92 Points

“Just bottled at the end of April. Made from the usual six plots. A pale lemon yellow. The nose has been knocked back a bit and is not yet showing much fruit. Then a little white fruit starts to emerge with some graphite, and a little bit of gunflint. Racy yet ripe with several layers of flavour and excellent length, the acidity perfectly wound in. On the assumption that the bouquet comes back as it should a little later on, after getting over the bottling, this will surely be a 5 star wine. Tasted: May 2022.”
-Jasper Morris- Inside Burgundy, 92 Points
