Not to be confused with the wines of Olivier Leflaive (the nephew), this is Domaine Leflaive, one of the top five Burgundy producers.
Sure, you can find - and we have - quite nice wines from the Maconnais region for under $20.... They are good, but, they won't taste like this!
Domaine Leflaive owns some of the most prized Grand Cru Chardonnay parcels in Burgundy. With his Montrachet's exceeding $1,000.00 per bottle and his Premier Cru's at $200+, this Leflaive is a bargain!
The same meticulous care and winemaking goes into each Leflaive wine - from this Macon-Verze all the way up to the Montrachets. Add biodynamic farming and you get wonderful expression of Chardonnay fruit.
Racy aromas of lime, lemon, chalky minerals, jasmine and green tea; green apple, fresh orange, lemon-zest and pear dance on the palate. A juicy and refreshing wine, it evolves in the glass with vibrant minerality and citrus notes.
Though Leflaive's Grand and Premier Crus can age for decades, this is a great opportunity to enjoy Burgundy's best now and over the next five years.
What do you pair with such a delight?
Seafood, seafood and seafood.
