Domaine Leflaive’s 2018 Bourgogne Blanc Showing Beautifully
Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc is an essential white Burgundy to know, sell, and serve. An ideal introduction to the wines of the world-renowned Puligny-Montrachet region and crafted by one of the most celebrated winemakers in Bourgogne, this 100% biodynamic bottle by the iconic Domaine Leflaive exemplifies the style of fine white Burgundy that is sought-after by wine-lovers and collectors around the world. An insider’s secret, the Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc is more evocative of your favorite Premier Cru than other wines in its price point and category. With 12 months spent in oak barrels (12% new) and six more in stainless steel tanks, Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc is prime for cellaring up to eight years to unleash its full potential. Bruce Sanderson called the 2018 vintage “ideal,” writing, after his early year visit to the Domaine in 2020, that “a tasting of the 2018 Chardonnay lineup at Leflaive reveals potential classics from Puligny-Montrachet”.
