Quite restrained. Angular and tight still. Lovely balance. Pretty midpalate. Very good

Flint, white flowers, minerals, salinity. Focussed and precise with really great structure and balancing acidity. Another great recent Leflaive tonight… victory! This is really good. A little less shower then the 09 Bastard alongside but really classy stuff. Excellent

Leflaive dinner. All out of mag. 2nd wine of 2010 flight. This was my jam. The story of how these vines have been inexplicably producing fruit for the last two decades contrary to lab results was the icing on the cake.

A honeyed and bright nose. That 10 oiliness and a packed and rich mid-palate. Lots of stuffing and great balance. Still tightly packed

Still very young. Very refined and balanced. A flinty chalky nose. On the palate a fresh, detailed. Like, floral. Light yet still very contained. A friend had a poxed one of these so the horrible dilemma of daring to wait until its really there.
