Fully mature. Yellow gold. Still a very nice drink with yellow fruits and gentle spice notes. Round but with some definition and a touch of mineral. Overall, still quite good, but it certainly doesn't seem like it will get any better.
Great color that shows just a hint of gold. The aromatics are perhaps a bit muted, but do project some hints of tropical fruit. The palate has a nice balance between flesh and cut, which work together to extend the finish. This is straight forward, easy to read and a fantastic bourgogne. Smoke em if you got em.
This wine has aged well. The nose you would expect from Leflaive with popcorn notes and roasted nuts. The palate is mature but still has lift and focus. This went very well with Talapia and capers. The fruit is ripe. Not a blockbuster but a lot of fun for what it is.

(Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc) Pale gold. The nose is also a little subdued, but there's ripe pineapple and melon with swirling. Fatter and richer palate which is just a little buttery. Lovely acidity and has a much longer finish than Faiveley's. Excellent Bourgogne.
(Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc) Easily one of the best Bourgogne blanc's out there and priced like it too. Worth every penny though because this tastes and smells like 1er Cru Puligny. Dense, rich and thick with bright acids. Great exuberant fruit and a very long finish.
