Domaines Leflaive cultivates 2.16 hectares in the appellation Pouilly-Fuissé. Pouilly-Fuissé, the flagship region of the Mâconnais, is cordoned to the west by a flotilla of prow-shaped rocks, of which the Rock of Solutré is the most famous.
The bowl at the base of the cliff at the foot of the Rock of Solutré is the heartland of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation, with some of the best soil forming strata on which Chardonnay grows in all of Burgundy. This is what helps make this such a special bottling. Making use of shallow calcareous clay located around the Roche de Solutre, Leflaive’s P-F has a ton of minerality and a chalkiness that they bring out even further with a partial egg-cement co-fermentation. Utilizing vines that date all the way back to 1960, this is a wonderfully flinty, age-worthy White Burgundy that shouldn’t peak for at least five years.
