Robert Parker 89
Aromas of pear, hazelnuts and citrus zest introduce Leflaive’s 2019 Bourgogne Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, racy and concentrated wine that’s chiseled and penetrating, concluding with chalky grip. This is a fine effort that punches above its weight.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2039
Freshly sliced pear, apple and lemon-lime scents give way to solidly concentrated and vibrant medium weight flavors that also exude a refreshing salinity on the attractively complex and sneaky long finish. This isn’t refined but it offers excellent quality for a regional wine. Recommended.
