Domaine Leflaive Meursault Sous Le Dos d'Ane 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Meursault|
Wine SpectatorA rich style, with lemon cake, apple and sweet spice flavors buoyed by vivid acidity. There is concentration and intensity midpalate, and the finish lingers, concluding on a mineral note. Drink now through 2024. 50 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane has a strict and yes, unsurprisingly Puligny-like bouquet that is taut and linear. The palate is actually more expressive than the nose, with walnut and orange zest notes, admirable weight and penetration with a vein of spice and lemongrass toward the finish. Once the aromatics fine their voice this could be a very interesting proposition.
