Notes from the Winemaker:

Vinification:
Long, gentle pneumatic pressing, "debourbage"', or "settling of the juice"' over 24 hours; then racking and running the must into cask
Alcoholic fermentation in oak casks, 22% new (maximum 1/3 Vosges, minimum 2/3 allier)
After 12 months in cask, the wine was aged an additional 6 months in tank, then prepared for bottling
Homeopathic fining and very light filtering at bottling, if necessary.


Ratings & Reviews



92 Points - James Suckling:

"This is always a little denser and richness than many Meursault and right next to Perriees. Full and layered in this year with pretty acidity. But ripe and rich with lots of flavor. So delicious now. Why wait?" - (February 12, 2019)

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane offers up aromas of green apples, tart Anjou pear, spring flowers and mint. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good concentration and chewy extract - ”Leflaive performed a green harvest on this young vines this year” - underpinned by juicy acids and concluding with a pure finish. This is a promising Meursault in the making." - William Kelley (4th Jan 2019)
