Nose has lightly grilled lemon, wet limestone, oxidized green apple peel, minor oak char and vanilla creme.
Palate has day-old lemon zest, yellow apple pulp, dried white florals, slight lanolin and dry earth. Mild acidity, just doing wonderful tonight.
Our last bottle of 2016 😢. Paired great with large slabs of Steelhead trout on the grill, toasted orzo with garden herbs and a wonderful salad of microgreens with early lettuces from a local farmer. Our greens likely to be ready in a couple more weeks. 🤤 I really need a full on greenhouse, a cold frame isn't enough! — 10 days ago

Beautiful straw gold. No sign of premix. Pear and honey. — a month ago
There’s a lot going on with this wine. A yeasty nose, and a Puckett Granny Smith mid palette with a bit of a peppery gravel finish. Was a delight with roast chicken, sourdough, dandelion blue cheese salad: every bite revealed new character in the wine. Drank the 2015 in 2020. — 9 days ago
Medium gold color, thankfully looks young. Fruity nose. Notes of lemon cream, sweet kiwi, apricot, spice, stones and clay soil. Rich and expansive in the mouth. With 4 hours of air the impact hit full throttle. Glad I kept some 02 Leflaive. Rolling the dice every now and then turns up a winner. — a month ago
Like the complexity and expressive fruit, bouquet, sophisticated and balanced. — a month ago
Anjou Cab Franc from the Leflaives of Burgundy fame. Superb but needs air and/or time. Tannins still fairly firm but super fine. Nose has musty earth, smoke, graphite and autumnal dried leaves, with black cherries and red forest berries and wood spice on the palate. Finish is velvety smooth. Perfect balance. Saved half the bottle for tomorrow night with great reluctance. — 9 hours ago

Definitely ‘leflaive style’ bravo Anne Claude and the team for biodynamics. Rully at its finest (and maybe it’s most expensive as well) more than rully style, it screams leflaive. Reductive, elegant and yet powerful at the same time. A regal wine and for around $50 almost seems like a bargain. Probably could’ve let this age a few years but I do love the 2017 acid and precision so have at it! ***Don’t forget to sign up for my emails at Alex@nolimitfinewines.com for up to date offers on rare and limited wines at the best price USA... ask anyone, I don’t disappoint!*** — a month ago
