I love Leflaive! I’m also starting to think higher quality whites definitely need a decant, especially those with more age.
Light yellow color. Mild nose with cream and lime, after some fishy funk blew off. Absolutely massive wine!! Well balanced with butter and more lime. Medium plus finish. — 5 days ago
Great for drinking in the park after your wife gets tenure. — a day ago
Ready to drink now, it’s aged nicely! Great with flank steak and roasted cauliflower — 21 days ago
Disgorged May 2018. A masterpiece. Aromatics are sweet citrus with a hint of tarragon. The palate is coated with white peach & crisp lemon. I’m amazed at how generous this is right from the pop. Texturally elegant and finessed. This is a great bottle of Champagne. — 5 days ago

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! — 19 days ago
Very balanced and drinkable. Not a ton of acidity, but very nice. — a day ago
