Domaine Leflaive 2007 Bâtard-Montrachet

    Frequently cited by collectors as being among the world’s preeminent producers of white wines, Domaine Leflaive was established in the town of Puligny near Beaune by Claude Leflaive in 1717. The family’s property in this Chardonnay-dominated region of Burgundy was gradually divided over the generations, but in the early 20th century, Joseph Leflaive, Claude’s descendant, regained the family’s foothold by purchasing important parcels, including the vineyards from which the fruit in the Domaine Leflaive 2007 Bâtard-Montrachet (www.wilsondaniels.com, $430) was sourced. Pale yellow yet tinged with peridot green, this regal white seduces the nose with scents of grilled pineapple and lime blossom, while its luxuriant texture glazes the palate with flavors of candied citrus, wild honey, mango, mint, and mineral.
