Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

$719

...involving and expressive bouquet...surprisingly richer than one would have expected, with traces of wild honey toward the caressing finish. This may well turn out to be the pick of Leflaive's 2016s. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Great mineral and acid - also struck match sulphury notes. Muted fruit on nose. Noticeable oak. With these GC White Burgundies the oak is usually very evident in the wine’s youth which balances out at 7 to 10 years. Vines are more than 40 years old. Again, huge potential: Jancis says of the drinking window: 2025 to 2040. From one of the most reputable White Burgundy producers in Leflaive.

What a great honor to taste the full lineup of Leflaive with Mr. Brice. No Montrachet Grand Cru for 2016 since 16 was a very difficult vintage. But still Leflaive didn’t fail to impress!

Magnificent year and equally magnificent wine. All about elegance and finesse. Round and round and round.
