After owning this wine for so many years it has really never improved to the price tag for the site. I found so many other wines from 2011 more interesting. Good color ice nose no as long as you would expect form Puligny. just good not great.

This is an especially difficult review as the wine had beautiful color, nose was classic Puligny fruit with a long finish but there was a slight hint of oxidation in the flavor and whiff ever so faint in the nose. Personally had more bad bottles of Leflaive than any other producer.

This has to be one of the best young Dom’s ever. Zesty lemon with a toasty backend. Color is bright almost green Chablis super elegant and long. Great wine consumed in both the legacy and regular label identical wines.

Just received this wine wax cap was broken so I decided to take the plunge. Starts out closed and then builds and builds a melange of zest ocean breeze stone minerality everything that's perfect about Chablis I think dauvissat and af boudin also achieve this old school classicism awesome
