SKU: 57167-2006
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($208) Sexy aromas of apricot and smoky, nutty oak, lifted by a floral topnote. Very ripe, rich and chewy, quite full for this bottling but with a mineral firmness giving it shape. Finishes with excellent length and nicely buffered alcohol. A silky, full-bodied white wine for winter drinking.

    A deep greenish golden glow to this substantial wine. Some putty scent and some spring blossom. Very firm on the palate with lots of matiAre and grip. You should wait quite a while for this but it's already very lively and already starting to develop a bouquet with a hint of orange peel. Quite powerful for a Leflaive wine."

    A distinctly more elegant nose that is quite floral in character along with both citrus, pear and white peach nuances that continue onto the attractively stony flavors that are focused, precise and delineated, all wrapped in a sappy and satisfyingly long finish. A classy effort that possesses fine balance and depth.

    Well integrated nose of lemon zest and meringue. Stroked the palate while feeling almost weightless and then finished strong.

"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
