Today we are thrilled to offer a unique selection of exceedingly rare wines from one of Burgundy’s most prominent producers, Domaine Leflaive. A modern day legend, Leflaive is known for the greatest whites in the region and probably, in the whole world: “Some of the greatest white Burgundy wines that I have ever tasted have come from this address, including older vintage bottles over the last 12 months. I will never forget immortal wines from the 1992 or 1999 vintages, more recently some fabulous 2007s”Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.

Coming from the Domaine’s best plots, mostly Grand Crus, these wines represent the essence of a rich legacy left by Anne-Claude Leflaive, who critics described as “one of Burgundy’s most brilliant vignerons” (Antonio Galloni) and who was undisputedly one of the most respected winemakers in the whole of France. “A great and practical innovator” (Jancis Robinson), Anne-Claude became the pioneer and the driving force behind biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy, introducing this approach as soon as she took charge of the family vineyards in 1990. While Anne-Claude’s wines were made to age and have always been sought after and treasured as collector’s items, the demand for them has only been growing since the untimely death of this talented winemaker in 2015.

This exclusive collection comes as a direct allocation from a top private client and includes absolute rarities, such as Leflaive Montrachet Grand Cru, a critics’ favourite which comes from a tiny parcel of less then a hectare. We are offering several vintages of this acclaimed wine, including the stunning 2005 which received 95-98 points from Allen Meadows (Burghound) who describes it as: “An ultra pure and still somewhat reserved nose of rose petal, anise, white peach and pear aromas that also display subtle hints of stone and smoke that dissolve seamlessly into unusually big and rich flavors that possess real size, weight and muscle, indeed this is almost Bâtard-like in its sheer volume, all wrapped in a deeply concentrated and wonderfully stony finish that is both impressively explosive and strikingly long”. This astonishing wine has just entered its drinking window and will continue to age beautifully for more than a decade. A more recent vintage, Montrachet Grand Cru 2013, received a rare 97-99 points from Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate: “It simply rockets from the glass with scents of citrus lemon, lemon curd, white peach and shaved almond all beautifully delineated. The palate is an intense “experience,” that being the operative word. It envelops the senses, cradles them with citrus scents, almond, limestone and white peach scents, the texture surprisingly rounded but not viscous. With enormous persistence, this is quite a remarkable Montrachet to be.”

As part of this unique Domaine Leflaive selection, we are also offering several vintages of exceptional Chevalier-Montrachets and Batard Montrachets, wines that have been perfectly described by Clive Coates MW as ‘‘the top Montrachets, Chevaliers and Batards are wines to drink on bended knees, with heartfelt and humble thanks.”

All of these wines are available for immediate delivery, however the stock is very limited. With just one bottle of some of these rarities, we urge you to secure your selection as soon as possible. Please note that although the wines have been stored in appropriate conditions and we can guarantee their impeccable provenance, some of the labels of older vintages may have minor scuffs. We are happy to provide photos and additional details upon request.
