    (bottled in late April): Bright light yellow. Musky aroma of peach nectar does not show the lift or precision of the Clavoillon. Sweet on the attack, then ripe, broad and classically dry in the middle, displaying a fine-grained texture and surprising tension. Finishes perfumed, gripping and long. This calls for four or five years of cellaring. Last year I found more of a difference in quality between this wine and the 2012 Clavoillon.

    An overtly ripe yet very fresh nose exhibits a pretty combination of white peach, apricot, anise and citrus blossom scents. There is ample mineral influence to the well-detailed and caressing medium-bodied flavors that possess both excellent volume and intensity that manifests itself on the clean, dry and lingering finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate.

  • "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
