Wine Critic Reviews:

An airy, cool and ultra-refined nose displays distinct lemon-lime and acacia blossom scents that of course include background notes of stone and saline that complement to perfection the intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess superb precision on the explosive and palate staining finish that seems to just go on and on. This is quite dry; in fact it's arguably the driest wine in the range yet this is not forbiddingly austere. I very much like the contrast between the sense of focused power and the mouth feel which is almost delicate. This is sheer class and the balance is flawless. This should go down as a classic vintage for this storied wine. Burghound.com

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Leflaive: The general wine population's taste in glorious white wines has been changing in recent years, but that has not stopped this legendary Burgundian estate from holding the market in the palm of their hand. Domaine Leflaive is a picture-perfect example of a quiet, yet dominant estate that doesn't feel like it has to impress you - it knows it will. If you can keep up with their steep prices and extremely high demand, their wines will create a new era of your life, one full of enlightenment and contentment. Depending on which bottle you sample, the flavor profile can vary, but one thing's for sure - the richness of their terroir is clearly on display. A strong presence of sharp, acidic citrus is made all the more delicious by adding in decadent honey, and a fine mineral undertone vibrates on the palate as the chewy texture makes its way across the tongue.
