    ($123) Expressive aromas of peach, butter and vanilla. Dense, chewy and dry, with notes of flowers and marzipan and impressive minerally depth. Classic rich-but-dry white Burgundy, finishing with excellent length. Bottled just two weeks before I tasted it, and more impressive today than when I sampled it from barrel a year ago.

    A superb white Puligny, offering lime and mineral aromas and flavors, with hints of flowers and vanilla pastry. It's lean and well-toned, with persistence and a crisp, toast- and mineral-tinged finish.

    Low key floral aromas and a certain sweetness. Very easy to like though not remotely flashy with a certainÿminerality underlying it all. Fine, glossy and easy with lots and lots of ripe fruit - very pure. Apparently this vineyard, along with Le Montrachet, is worked by horse nowadays.ÿ

"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.
