Yellow plum, roasted nuts, coconut, iodine and fresh herbs on the nose. Silky and thick on entry, then powerful and a bit youthfully disjointed in the middle palate; very rich but currently a bit aggressive and uncompromisingly dry, due to its strong lemony acidity and powerful oak spice component. A chewy, sappy, solid wine whose sheer density hides its 13.8% alcohol.

About This Producer

"If the blessed slopes of the Cote d'Or are home to the ultimate expression of Chardonnay, then Anne-Claude Leflaive could be regarded as the magician, some might use the word "shaman", who can conjure wine like no other from this propitious terroir." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
