Tasted 54 weeks ago and also in June 2019 with similar notes. Very new world in this warm 2015 vintage. Peach and pineapple with some creaminess. Good QPR from one of the top names in White Burgundy.

Pale gold in colour. Stone fruit and citrus with stone fruit in the ascendant. Could be new world. Medium intensity - great balance with good minerality and excellent QPR for $50. Macon - poor mans White Burgundy from one of its best producers in Leflaive who produce all cuvees from Macon up to the fabled and expensive Le Montrachet. The more one drinks this the more one is impressed. Tasted again 26 weeks later on 6th June 2019. Notes as above with a big influx of pineapple juice. Quite new world in style.

Apple, flowers and salinity. Was good with Oysters and not as lush as Leflaive usually shows.

Pineapples and papaya with some butter, corn action at the back end. Very smoky after a while, almost burnt wood, in a good way. Good acidity but nothing special. Slight disappointed.
