Domaine Leflaive

This is the first vintage to be made entirely by Leflaive’s new cellarmaster, Pierre Vincent. Harvest took place from 28th August to 3rd September. The berries were small with thick skins.

After 22 years of biodynamic viticulture, they feel the wines have better acidity. All are matured for a year in 228-litre pièces then six months in tanks on the fermentation lees to add extra texture and complexity before bottling. Since the 2014 vintage domaine Leflaive have been using Diam corks (Diam 10 for Bourgogne and village, and Diam 30 for premiers and grands crus).

Please note: unfortunately quantities are so tiny that we have to limit members to one bottle only.

Domaine Leflaive, Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2017

From two parcels, one above Bienvenues and one below Le Montrachet on the Chassagne side. Bâtard sits well down below the surface of the road which separates it from Le Montrachet above, marking a fault in the rock and a transition to more clay in the soil, giving this broad-shouldered wine a weighty palate whose density can be felt in the mouth. Drink from 2024 to 2028. 13.5%
