2014 Domaine Leflaive, Macon-Verze, Burgundy

Press and Tasting Notes

Racy aromas of lime, lemon, talc-y minerals, jasmine and green tea; very tight initially, but aeration brings up fresh orange and pear qualities that carry onto the palate. A firm, juicy and refreshing wine that develops greater depth and power in the glass. Finishes with strong minerality and citrus character.

THE REVIEW

You should always have a few bottles of Burgundy's best chilled and ready to crack open this spring and summer. I do!
    Without fail, Domaine Leflaive's Macon-Verze is among my "drink now" collection. This zesty Chardonnay has it all: wonderful acidity, balance and a luscious richness. Without a doubt, this Macon will be a crowd pleaser as the warmer weather fast approaches.
    Domaine Leflaive wines (not to be confused with his nephew Olivier Leflaive) can fetch $450 per bottle for his Batard-Montrachet. And, few do Batard better. But for an everyday white Burgundy, Leflaive's Macon will soon be your go-to white. Whether you like lobster salad, shrimp, fish or roasted chicken, this delicious white Burgundy can stand up to it all.
