Description

Domaine Leflaive is one of the world’s great wine domains, producing some of Burgundy’s most sought-after white wines. The Leflaive family Domaine has a history dating back to 1717 and has 23 hectares of holdings spread throughout Grand Cru, 1er Cru, Village, and AOC level vineyards around Puligny. The Domaine gained its prominence in the hands of Anne-Claude Leflaive, who converted the vineyards to biodynamics in the 1990s giving the wines greater transparency in their expression of terroir.

Chevalier-Montrachet is one of five grand cru vineyards on the Mont-Rachet hill at the very southern end of the Côte d'Or. Like all of the top vineyards in this part of the Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet is planted to Chardonnay and makes structured, full-bodied white wines that are often regarded as the ultimate expression of the variety. The climat, located on the southeast-facing midslope of the hill, is the highest grand cru site in Puligny-Montrachet, rising to 985ft (300m) above sea level. The prestigious Montrachet vineyard is on the slope directly below, with Bâtard-Montrachet below that. 2019 is one of the recent Great vintages.
