A top-drawer biodynamic Meursault Premier Cru, produced by one of the most emblematic domains in Burgundy. Combining richness, unctuosity and elegance, this is a truly excellent wine! More info
Domaine Leflaive has a very attractive plot of land in Clavoilon premier cru vineyards (4.7 hectares). Vines have been grown here since 1959. Pressing is long and gentle. The wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels (22% new oak) then élevage (in barrels) lasts around 12 months, followed by another 6 months in vats. The wine is very lightly fined then filtered if necessary. It produces a superb Puligny which majors in indulgence with an intense fruitiness. There is an impressively elegant saline finish. Cellar it for between 6 and 15 years.
The name of the Domaine Leflaive will long remain associated with its famous ambassador Anne-Claude who, with the energy of the pioneers, converted the domaine to biodynamics between 1993 and 1997. The Leflaive family has lived in Puligny since 1717. But it was the genius of a marine engineer, a student of the Ecole Polytéchnique,which was needed to revive an area devastated by phylloxera. After participating in the design of the first French submarine, Joseph Leflaive returned to his native village, replanted and raised the profile of the domaine’s wines well beyond the French borders. The third generation, Olivier and his cousin Anne-Claude, ensured that the domaine was at the heights of Burgundian hierarchy. Tasting the domaine’s wines is a unique experience for any wine lover. The special attention paid to the vineyard and to the winemaking allows its particularly rich wines to reveal all the subtleties of the different Burgundian terroirs. Montrachet, Batârd, Chevalier, Bienvenues-Bâtard and the premier crus Folatières or Pucelles are wines with fundamentally different identities. These are rare cuvées, which every wine lover should taste at least once!
