A cool, airy and almost delicate nose sports notes of pain grillé, citrus and dried rose petal plus a wet stone hint that carries over to rich and nicely full yet precise and clearly stonier middle weight flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel and excellent cut, intensity and length if not the depth of the best 1ers in the range. This should age nicely as it's very well balanced.

($155) Bright, pale yellow. Restrained aromas of stone fruits, clove, nuts and minerals. Fruitier and sweeter in the mouth than the Clavoillon, with enticing harmonious acidity but less obvious minerality. But this rich, round wine has plenty of depth, and its mineral component comes up on the oak-spicy finish.

The 2007 has a nutty / yeasty character plus a pleasant savoury meatiness on the nose with underlying notes of apricot kernels, lemon curd and crushed stones. The palate has great tension with lots of tightly wound fruit and a very crisp acid line, finishing long and minerally. Approachable now, it could really use another year in bottle to fully open-out.

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
