Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Notes of Anjou pear, white flowers and blanched almonds introduce Leflaive's 2018 Bourgogne Blanc, a medium-bodied, supple and fleshy wine that's open-knit and lively, revealing a demonstrative, giving profile that will make friends in its youth." - William Kelley (Jan 2021)
