    ($128) Sweet, oily aromas of peach, pear and spices, with a distinct suggestion of more exotic fruits. Steely, brisk and pure, with lovely intensity and cut. Boasts excellent acidity for 2000. This really dances on the palate. Finishes vibrant, firm-edged and long. A superb premier cru.

    From The Purple Notebook ? Decanter/Christie?s fundraising dinner at Covent Garden.Very full and powerful. A kick of savoury on the finish but big and rich. Very, very crystal clear ? some minerality. Not even the merest hint of sweetness. Vibrant. Presented by no-nonsense Anne-Claude Leflaive.

    Thick and opulent, very satisfying, this full-bodied Chardonnay is packed with clean fruit. Tropical (pineapple), dried herbs, smoke and mineral notes give plenty of excitement here. With time, it should flesh out to a seductive, smooth finish; for now it is hard.

    Toasted minerals are found in the nose of the 2000 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles. Light to medium-bodied and highly defined, this wine has outstanding depth to its silky, lush personality. Minerals and pears are found in this concentrated wine's character as well as in its supple, fresh, and exceptionally long finish.

    Attractive honeysuckle and white flower aromas merge seamlessly with gorgeous, round, wonderfully textured flavors that offer a fantastic combination of finesse, sweet extract, superb focus and outstanding length. This is exceptionally fine and has an amazing fruit/acid balance. First rate!

    Great minerality with strong notes of peach and honey, richness and the most incredibly full, perfectly balanced mouthfeel. Complex, textured and overall a wonderful wine. Grand Cru quality with a Grand Cru Price. One of our guests described it as pinpoints of richness

"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

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
