Domaine Leflaive 2007 Chardonnay (Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet)

  1. $411
A glorious outpouring of beautifully crafted Chardonnay, opulent but tightly mineral. The ripe apple and pear character has a delicate, elegant squeeze of lime, while the whole wine is underpinned by wood. No doubt for long-term aging.  — R.V.  (7/1/2010)

Domaine Leflaive 2009 Chardonnay (Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $410
With its concentrated yellow fruits, this is already a powerful wine. It is packed with acidity, toast, peach flavors and minerality, starting out as a gorgeously rich wine from a ripe vintage. Of course, it will age over many years; open in 10 years.  — R.V.  (5/1/2012)

Domaine Leflaive 2008 Chardonnay (Bâtard-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $430
This beautiful wine is austere at this very young stage. But what pent-up power—the richness comes from glorious ripe fruit, tempered with a core of steel and wrapped with pure lemon, apricot and toast flavors. Age for 10 years at least.  — R.V.  (7/1/2011)

Domaine Leflaive 2008 Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $550
A ripe, toasty wine, very buttery. It has rich, almost sweet yellow fruit balanced with a wonderful mineral texture. The wine, of course, is still very young, but shows its future as being rounded and opulent. The acidity that holds it all together shows in the finish.  — R.V.  (7/1/2011)

A marvelously intense wine, the Chardonnay singing with light toast and acidity. The wine has layers of green apple, spice, a tight texture and orange zest highlights. Age for at least seven years.  — R.V.  (5/1/2011)

Domaine Leflaive 2006 Chardonnay (Bâtard-Montrachet)

  1. $451
The balance of this wine is what makes it so impressive. Spice and yellow fruit intermingle effortlessly. There is a core of tight, coiled steel, like a spring, which gives minerality along with the richness. At the end, acidity lifts the wine, finishing with freshness as well as intensity.  — R.V.  (5/1/2009)

Domaine Leflaive 2006 Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  1. $574
Taut and mineral, this is currently a wine that is waiting to reveal its power and majesty. The fruit is on a tight rein of acidity, which only slowly opens up to show mango, pineapple, crisp citrus, layers of toast and a mouth-enveloping richness. Age for at least five years, preferably 10.  — R.V.  (5/1/2009)

  1. $260
A powerful wine, showing rich, opulent Chardonnay. The spice and acidity crispen the wine, but leave the powerful fruit in all its glory.  — R.V.  (7/1/2010)
