2018 DOMAINE LEFLAIVE, MACON VERZE / 勒弗萊酒莊乾白

Something about Domaine Lefliave

Domaine Leflaive is the most famous estate in Puligny-Montrachet. After the untimely death of Anne-Claude Leflaive in April 2015, the estate is now being managed by Brice de la Morandiere with the winemaking under the control of Eric Remy (in succession to Pierre Morey who retired in 2008).

Leflaives have been extant in Puligny since 1717 but the real founder of the domaine was Joseph (1870-1953) who was succeeded by two of his sons, Vincent and Jo. However it was under the stewardship of Anne-Claude between 1990 and 2015 that the domaine became a leader in Burgundy’s biodynamic movement, the whole property being converted in 1997.
The wines are aged for 12 months in 25% new oak and are then transferred to steel tanks where they are allowed to clarify naturally over the second winter. They are then fined and bottled. Leflaive produces superb wines that combine richness and depth of fruit with elegance, refinement and perfect balance.

Leflaive has 22 hectares of vineyards, including 10 hectares of Premiers Crus (in Puligny Montrachet: Les Combettes, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Folatieres and in Meursault-Blagny, Sous le Dos d’Ane) and no fewer than 5 hectares of Grands Crus (Chevalier Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet, Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet and a tiny holding of Le Montrachet).

FROM THE
EXPERTS

This too is notably cool with more citrus influence on the restrained green apple aromas. There is slightly more volume if not quite the same refinement to the delicious middle weight flavors that flash a touch of minerality on the equally youthfully austere finale. This is quite good and worth checking out. Outstanding.

The 2018 Mâcon-Verzé comes from nine different vineyards over 13 hectares and is matured in stainless steel, concrete and a small amount of used oak. This was scheduled to be bottled toward the end of 2019. It has pretty Granny Smith apple and wet limestone aromas that are well defined. The palate is crisp and fresh, with a strong citric element and a touch of sour lemon toward the powerful finish.
