Description

Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc 2015

Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc is a village wine produced by arguably the finest white wine estate in the world.

Green-gold colour. The fruity bouquet exudes green apple, ripe pear, grapefruit and kiwi aromas with a whiff of melted butter, vanilla and flinty minerals. The aromas follow through to a harmonious and pure palate that has a fine acidity and creamy texture. Closes with a silky finish. A tasty daily sipper.

100% Chardonnay. From a 2 hectare vineyard  with limestone clay soils and old vines that were planted between 1950–1990.

After a manual harvest, the grapes go through a long and soft pneumatic pressing. Fermentation occurs in Vosges and Allier oak barrels, 25% of which are new. Ageing for 12 months in barrels, then a further 6 months in vats before bottling.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 The 2015 Bourgogne Blanc has a clean, grapefruit and green apple-scented bouquet, a little fatter than I recall the 2014 last year. The palate is balanced with a pleasant weight and fatness in the mouth, the acidity retaining decent tension, leading to a spicy though not tensile finish. Drink this over the next 2-4 years. I like the bit of chutzpah here. — Neal Martin.

– 86–88 POINTS

 This too is agreeably cool with its fresh array of pear, apple and kiwi fruit aromas. There is once again fine volume to the solidly concentrated flavors where the mid-palate is supple to the point of being almost easy yet the finish tightens up enough to maintain the balance.
