Bourgogne Blanc, Domaine Leflaive 2012
**Note: includes some declassified villages wine**
An airy and attractively layered nose presents primarily floral, pear and citrus peel aromas that display a background hint of matchstick. The energetic but impressively rich flavors possess a lovely texture, indeed this is finer than most examples of the genre, all wrapped in a saline-inflected finish where the citrus character telegraphed by the nose reappears. This serious effort will clearly need at least some bottle age as it's presently very tight.
