July 29, 2021 - Amazing! I guess for every premox bottle out there, there is one like this... beautiful perfect color; no TCA; no premox; performed wonderfully and was pure and crystalline; very nice; perhaps I even wished for a bit more "premox" to make the nose even more evolved and expressive! Great stuff and this bottle would have easily lived for another 10-15 years.

Similar to the Batard Montrachet same vintage, two days ago. Some nuts, good acidity structure. compared to the d'Auvenay (2007) two classes behind. 94
April 4, 2021 - Just as rich and delicious as 2 years ago.
November 26, 2020 - Premox. Awful
November 11, 2020 - Citrus aromatics. Clean wine, excellent condition. Real depth, quite robust palate.
November 6, 2020 - White burgs at Wu's.: White Burgs at Wu's. Premoxed. I mean, who could have guessed?
March 20, 2020 - Coronavirus Denial; 3/1/2020-5/31/2020: Oxidized beyond belief
January 1, 2020 - I would would really like to know what happened my bottles... just not enjoyable.. limited fruit and maderized. just painful
November 2, 2019 - 2019 Birthday wines: Rauno served the Leflaives as a pair double blind. Initally the lighter coloured of the two wines, it became slightly darker coloured over the evening. Showing signs of premox on both bouquet and palate. A nose of grapefruit, toffee apple, peaches and blanched almonds but with a dominant lactic, almost cheesy note. Drinking materially older than the '06, quite oxidised. It seemed to have some good underlying fruit and persistent acidity, and drank better with the food. Ultimately, however, a wine from such a great vintage, site and producer should have been drinking better than this.
July 15, 2019 - Gylden gul, men ingen tegn til ox på farge. Lover bra. Fantastisk nese rett fra flaske. Begynnende moden og helt integrert og balansert. Vakker og salig med moden hvit og gul frukt, petrichor og mais. Blir mer tropisk med tid i glasset. Svær og massiv i munn. Intens og seriøs, med rå nerve. Kunne vært hakket mer lettdrikkelig. 14 % alkohol. Uansett en feilfri flaske på et godt sted.
