Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues Batard Montrachet 2007, 750ml (WA94, ST93+, WS94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues Batard Montrachet

750ml

Vintage: 2007
Appellation: Puligny Montrachet, Cote de Beaune

WA94, ST93+, WS94
Rated 94 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The Leflaive 2007 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet smells of lily, heliotrope, and narcissus, white peach, pineapple, and toasted nuts. With infectious primary juiciness of ripe fruit accompanied by liquid floral perfume on the palate, and transparent to saline and chalky nuances, this is creamy and rich without sacrificing refreshment or a sense of lift and delicacy. For all of its alluring perfume and suggestions of sweetness, the finish here is remarkably dominated by saline, stony, and savory yet still mineral characteristics. This is a bit less dynamic than the Pucelles but at least for now richer. It strikes me as another candidate for a decade of enjoyment.` -- David Schildknecht in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Departing from the script of most vignerons I visited, Leflaive cellar master Eric Remy (who took over last year from Pierre Morey, with whom he has worked for several years) claimed his 2007 fruit - which he began picking September 1 - harbored a 2:1 ratio of tartaric to malic acidity (whereas, he adds, it was close to reversed in 2007). While some crop was lost to hail - particularly in Chevalier-Montrachet - Remy did not think this affected quality, and he had the same attitude toward mildew (combated here with biodynamic methods), which he said did not compromise the fruit. Alcohol levels largely hover below 14%, that is to say lower - regardless of cru - than any of the 2006s.`
