2010 Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne (Blanc)

by JC (NC) » Wed Mar 08, 2017 2:34 am

Medium gold color with clarity. The Chardonnay varietal characteristic comes through although some French oak is also apparent. It is nicely acidic. I find vanillin and lanolin notes and perhaps a bit of pie crust and lemon or lime curd. Nice! (My bottle was not oxidized.) I had this one evening with chicken salad with artichoke hearts, seedless grapes and a poppy seed dressing. Part of note from CellarTracker. I have one more bottle of this and will probably have it this year or next year perhaps with crab cakes (not too spicy.)

Love LeFlaives. Jump on the '14 if you get a chance.

The Leflaive "Les Setilles" is an annual buy for me

I believe the Setilles Bourgogne is Olivier, not Domaine.
I love Domaine Leflaive, but now only on closeouts. $40-50 for Bourgogne is just hard for me (not so long ago you could get Bourgogne for $20-25, village Pul for $40-50, lesser 1ers (Clavoillon) for $60-75

Had my remaining bottle of the Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc last January. Got more apple notes this time around. Pleasing and well-balanced,
