Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

Pale yellow. Deeply pitched, slightly reduced aromas of stone fruits, musky gunflint and minerals. Rich, dense and fat, offering superb depth of yellow fruit, spice and mineral flavors. Round and quite powerful in the middle, then builds on the back half, finishing uncompromisingly dry and explosive. This youthfully reduced wine probably needs a good 7 or 8 years in the cellar and should outpace the Folatieres by age 12. At this point in our tasting, winemaker Remy mentioned that consumers were opening the Leflaive 2004s and believing that they were oxidized when in fact they were reduced and in need of air.

"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
