Snooth: The Greatest White Wines in the World featuring Domaine Leflaive

Snooth’s Michelle Williams takes a look at Puligny-Montrachet:

 “This is a place where terroir reigns supreme. Complex soils weave together like a tapestry, with limestone, especially on the slopes, playing a leading role. The climate is continental – warm, dry summers and cool winters. Fog and hail loom as constant threats in the spring. Generations of winemakers have studied the area’s topography, developing a detailed map of the region in an effort to understand its influence on the wine.”

Highlighting the the name synonymous with the appellation; Domaine Leflaive:

“The most famous estate in Puligny-Montrachet is Domaine Leflaive. With ancestry in Puligny dating back to 1717, the Domaine was founded by Joseph Leflaive in 1870. In 1990, Anne-Claude Leflaive took the helm, spearheading the winery into a leader in Burgundy’s biodynamic viticulture.”

“My overall impression of my first Domaine Leflaive tasting – wow. Beginning with the simple elegance of Mâcon-Verzé, through all four Premier Crus, and ending with three Grand Crus, I was in wine heaven. I took notes, but upon reflection found them useless – asking myself, “these are some of the greatest white wines in the world, what do notes matter?””
