Domaine Leflaive Bourgone Blanc 2014 - the only Bourgogne Blanc I've had with this level of intensity and precision is by Coche-Dury. As Anne-Claude's last vintage its an absolute belter. Tight as a drum on first our, this is firm, precise and wrapped in citrusy fruit. Enjoyed over 3 nights it slowly unfurls but loses nothing. A wine that will age for a decade, I have no doubt. Drink from 2019 onwards. £220/6 IB. 30 bottles available.
Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 2014 - the last vintage made by Anne-Claude Leflaive, who sadly passed away in 2015, but not before elevating Domaine Leflaive to sit amongst the greatest estates in Burgundy. Biodynamic since the early 1990s, the wines of Leflaive are revered, when on song, for their tension, texture and precision. I recall tasting a vertical of the 2007s at the Domaine in 2009 and it was like watching a beautifully tuned orchestra move through the scales, each wine metronomic in harmony if more tightly pitched with each step up in quality. £425/6 IB - 18 bottles available.
Domaine Leflaive 1er Cru Pucelles Puligny-Montrachet 2014 - sourced from 3 separate plots, this is an outstanding premier cru and one of Burgundy's finest wines. Laden with floral characters and piercing intensity. Quintessential Puligny-Montrachet, this will age magnificently for more than a decade. Drink from 2023 onwards. £1,200/6 IB - 6 bottles available.
Domaine de Montille Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2014 - a fabulous grand cru, Corton Charlemagne promises much and delivers it. A wine of broad shoulders and majestic intensity, de Montille favours a less structured route than in years past, using only around 25% new oak in this wine. A fabulous wine for ageing over 10-20 years. There is so much intensity and structure, the 2014s could age much longer in the right conditions. Drink from 2025 onwards £480/6 IB - 6 bottles available.
Domaine de Montille1er Cru Les Caillerets Puligny-Montrachet 2014 - a site that borders Montrachet and produces exceptional wines, amongst the finest Burgundy. Blain Gagnard's wine comes from two plots - one that sits on marl and gives power, the other that runs over white soil, giving mineral precision. Very complex and incredibly fine. A relative bargain in the context of modern white Burgundy. £480/6 IB - 6 bottles available.
Domaine Blain-Gagnard Batard Montrachet Grand Cru 2014 - amazing elegance in the most corpulent of sites, this is majestic and richly textured. The freshness of the 2014 clearly sits well in Batard, the wine is out of the blocks and has such harmony it could be enjoyed in its youth despite the obvious long-term ageing potential. Best from 2022 onwards. £800/6 IB - 6 bottles available.
