Notify me when this product is available:

Domaine Leflaive cultivates 2.16 hectares in the appellation Pouilly-Fuissé. Pouilly-Fuissé, the flagship region of the Mâconnais, is cordoned to the west by a flotilla of prow-shaped rocks, of which the Rock of Solutré is the most famous. (At the base of this cliff is a Stone Age archaeological site containing the skeletons of over 100,000 horses — which gives the name to the archaeologic era of the Solutrian.) The bowl at the foot of the Rock of Solutré is the heartland of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation, with some of the best soil forming strata on which Chardonnay grows in all of Burgundy. Composed of fossiliferous marl and marly limestone, the area was under the shallow Jurassic sea millions of years ago.

Viticulture is 100% biodynamic. Vines planted in 1960 and 2011. Fermentation in 25% in egg-cement and 75% in oak barrels (15% new). Aging: 12 months in oak casks, 20% new, then 6 months in small, stainless-steel tanks.
