Founded in 1717, Domaine Leflaive has long been considered the most highly regarded white wine domaine in all of Burgundy. Pierre Vincent – who joined in 2017 from Domaine de la Vougeraie – was handed a gem of a vintage. Hard to believe there was room for improvement, but the 2018s may just prove us wrong.
Wine Spectator recently featured the famous winery and declared, “Domaine Leflaive is Puligny’s flagship domaine.” Then they dialed in on 2018 “an ideal vintage at Domaine Leflaive” and took aim at the Puligny-Montrachet in particular and its immense vibrancy and flavor profile.
In tasting this one last week, I was blown away by the burst of peach, Meyer lemon and citrus flavors as well as the incredible depth and weight to the wine. It’s got a really nice balance to it and is so clean and woven wonderfully tight with tremendous acidity behind it that leaves me to believe that this beauty will drink well for the better part of the next two decades.
