Domaine Leflaive, Macon-Verze, Burgundy

Citrus Zest From Burgundy's Best!
SHIPPING NOW

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.

Enjoy!

$47.95 per bottle / $575.40 per case
