Domaine Leflaive Macon-Verze 2017

$65.00

Domaine Leflaive is without question Burgundies finest white wine producer and this is without doubt the best value fine wine going!! It is a beautiful, white yellow in colour and with a perfume that combines a citrus, zesty mineral quality with an initially subdued creamy richness. The palate is seductive, lush but with a crisp acidity, nice weight and a delectably supple finish.

“From six parcels in Mâcon-Verzé, this offers subtle citrus, wet stone and apricot aromas followed by a juicy, lively palate with good density. On the rich scale, with honeyed lemon rind and creamy edges balanced by a crisp finish”

More Information

Domaine Leflaive

Domaine Leflaive is the most famous estate in Puligny-Montrachet. After the untimely death of Anne-Claude Leflaive in April 2015, the estate is now being managed by Brice de la Morandiere with the winemaking under the control of Eric Remy (in succession to Pierre Morey who retired in 2008).

Leflaives have been extant in Puligny since 1717 but the real founder of the domaine was Joseph (1870-1953) who was succeeded by two of his sons, Vincent and Jo. However it was under the stewardship of Anne-Claude between 1990 and 2015 that the domaine became a leader in Burgundy’s biodynamic movement, the whole property being converted in 1997.
The wines are aged for 12 months in 25% new oak and are then transferred to steel tanks where they are allowed to clarify naturally over the second winter. They are then fined and bottled. Leflaive produces superb wines that combine richness and depth of fruit with elegance, refinement and perfect balance.

Leflaive has 22 hectares of vineyards, including 10 hectares of Premiers Crus (in Puligny Montrachet: Les Combettes, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Folatieres and in Meursault-Blagny, Sous le Dos d’Ane) and no fewer than 5 hectares of Grands Crus (Chevalier Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet, Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet and a tiny holding of Le Montrachet).
