Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

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.

Burghound | Rating: 89-91

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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Ripe, verging on apricot in flavor, with hints of nectarine, grapefruit and vanilla, yet minerally. Full-bodied and sinewy, with a juicy finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($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.

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

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay

Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
