At the beginning of 2004, SCE Domaine Leflaive acquired five parcels (Les Chênes, En Perret, Le Monté, Escolles and Les Muses) of mature Chardonnay vines in the commune of Verzé in the Mâconnais (the Mâcon-Verzé appellation).
From the very first year, the vines were cultivated biodynamically. Cultivation of the vineyards is carried out by Paul de Noüe (a member of the Leflaive family) within SCE Joseph LEFLAIVE, which is a subsidiary of Domaine Leflaive. All viticulture is supervised by Eric Remy, Domaine Leflaive’s estate manager.
This is a wonderful Chardonnay that shows a glimpse of what has made Domaine Leflaive one of the leading white wine producers in the world. The nose offers white flowers with good volume and depth - there is plenty of flesh here that make is a candidate for early consumption. Just a great bottle of wine that is not going to break the bank.
