    Domaine Leflaive is the most famous estate in Puligny-Montrachet. Anne-Claude Leflaive became co-gérant of this famous Puligny domaine in 1990 - she had long believed that the use of fertilisers and herbicides was doing serious long-term damage to the soil in Burgundy and one of her first innovations was to move towards an organic approach to her vineyards.

    The palate has a pleasing line of rocky minerality, with a zesty, almost sherbeted pliancy. Apple and pear fruit, taut and crunchy. Very sensitively made, the ripeness of the vintage making itself felt in a gratifying weight on the back-palate. 15% new oak.
