2016 Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc

SKU #1378047 90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The tiny crop in the Leflaive parcels of Bourgogne Blanc have not adversely affected the quality of this consistently fine wine, and the 2016 version is one of the finest I have ever tasted here. The bouquet is superb, offering up scents of apple, lemon, chalky soil tones, spring flowers and a lovely topnote of lemon zest. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and racy, with a lovely soil signature, fine focus and great backend cut and grip on the impressively long and classy finish. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2018-2035) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Round and fruity, yet with good cut, showcasing lemon, apple and mineral flavors, with a touch of spice. Citrusy acidity focuses the lingering, tangy finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An attractively fresh nose combines notes of pear, apple and citrus elements. The delicious and solidly concentrated middle weight flavors possess a beguiling sense of underlying tension before concluding in a complex and lingering finish where the only reproach is a touch of warmth. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

Decanter

Outer quote mark The 2016 Bourgogne Blanc is a nice wine, though it doesn’t attain the heights that this cuvée sometimes reaches, with aromas and flavours of lemon, green apple and nutmeg, and a medium-full, moderately intense palate. This is tasty, but a bit ephemeral considering the price tag it now commands. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep greenish gold. Quite spicy and broad. Seems brighter and friendlier than some previous vintages. Long and quite rich. Drink: 2018-2023 16.5/20 Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Bourgogne Blanc has quite a powerful bouquet with fresh lemon peel and light granitic notes. The palate is well balanced with a slightly oily texture, good acidity, quite powerful with a tangy finish that just needs a little more mineralité coming through. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Subdued aromas of menthol and minerals. Stone fruit and menthol flavors convey an attractive creaminess. Good, serious Bourgogne with structure and length, not to mention character. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris (MW): "Frost then mildew reduced the crop substantially. Pale colour with a fresh green note, some tension to the nose, indeed still some fermentation aromas. This fills out the mouth beautifully, with good weight at the back." (01/2018)
