Estate Notes

Domaine Leflaive needs little introduction to wine lovers. It has been described as Burgundy’s greatest white wine domaine, and while this is a pretty strong claim, it is a justifiable one.

Leflaive has been bio-dynamic since 1997 and was managed by the late and great Anne-Claude. Anne-Claude had the greatest respect for Burgundy tradition and was deeply concerned about the irreversible damage caused to Burgundy soil by fertilisers and pesticides. She followed organic methods and helped establish a winemaking school at the domaine in Puligny-Montrachet (the Ecole du Vin et des Terroirs), in order to educate wine professionals. Her pursuit of excellence in winemaking brought her many accolades, including Decanter Magazine’s top white winemaker in 2006 and Winemakers' Winemaker by the Institute of Masters of Wine in 2014 – a massive achievement. Her legacy lives on...

Reviews

“I especially like the vibrant minerality here. Yellow stone fruits flesh out the mid-palate and finish nicely in this expressive, radiant wine that captures the essence of the year. Remy comments that he tends to use barrels with lower levels of toast for the Folatieres to compensate for the richness the fruit provides on its own.” Antonio Galloni
