Biodynamic since 1998, Domaine Leflaive does not use pesticides, artificial fertilisers or weed killers.  Using natural yeasts the wine is fermented and then moved into stainless tanks and then on to small oak casks, of which 25-33% are new.  58 acres of Chardonnay produce around 10,000 vines per hectare, with an average vine age of 30 years.  Run by Anne-Claude Leflaive, this great estate produces wines of steely minerality, with extraordinary texture, intensity and huge ageing potential.  Wines include Batard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet Les Combettes and Les Pucelles.

Tasting Notes:
The 1999 Batard-Montrachet reveals intense, sweet, mineral and white fruit aromas. Medium-bodied, well-structured, and tightly wound, it is rich, concentrated, and fresh. This mineral, apple, and pear-flavored wine should be at its peak of maturity between 2002 and 2010. Wine Advocate # 133 Feb 2001
