Sommelier Journal

    (Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc, Burgundy, France) The same day I tasted this gem, I tasted Domaine Leflaive’s grand cru Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. It was $410 a bottle, stupendous, and way out of my league pocketbookwise. So I turned my attention to this supposedly simple Bourgogne Blanc. Alas, there was nothing simple about it. The amazingly deep richness, purity, and integrity were astounding for a wine that holds merely a regional “Bourgogne” credential. It had a vividness, an almost soulfulness, that marked it as coming from rarified vineyards. Indeed, Domaine Leflaive, which I consider to be the single best producer of white Burgundy ever, owns vineyards that rank among the crown jewels of France. This may be the domaine’s “little” wine, but its impact is anything but.
