Bourgogne Blanc 2019 Magnum 1500ml
“This is routinely one of the best generic bottlings to be found.” – Wine Advocate
Organic, biodynamic and iconic, Domaine Leflaive is the doyen of Puligny-Montrachet producing “the kind of wine that should be delivered by Grace Kelly” according to the Wall Street Journal. The attention to detail invested in these Chardonnays “set standards for white Burgundy that few other estates can approach”, and in the words of Wine Advocate: “If you do not like Leflaive’s wines, then you do not like white Burgundy.”
2019 was a highly unusual year. Despite the blazing hot and extremely dry conditions, the wines have freshness and acidity, much to the surprise of the critics and the winemakers. The result has been declared a “a superb vintage” by the experts at Wine Advocate. So, we recommend getting all over this vintage before everything gets snapped up. This magnum from Domaine Leflaive is a great place to start. It clearly impressed the experts at Antonio Galloni’s Vinous:
“The 2019 Bourgogne Blanc, bottled in March 2021, is lively on the nose with citrus fruit, crushed limestone, quite tensile for a regional wine. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite concentrated with a very slight viscosity towards its finish. Impressive.”
Domaine Leflaive’s Bourgogne Blanc is sourced from old vines in “Les Houlières” and younger vines in “Les Parties”, both of which reside in Puligny-Montrachet. Wine Advocate has previously described it as: “precisely what you want from a Bourgogne Blanc.” But it’s so much more than just a humble Bourgogne Blanc, this has a discreet oak frame surrounding a masterpiece of ripe peach, refreshing grapefruit, tangy lemon tart, orange zest, vanilla, chalk and distant lavender fields. Partner with roast chicken, tagine, coq au vin, grilled fish, creamy sauces or risotto.
