A beautiful nose of hazelnut, toasted wood and vanila. A rich and luscious structure with flavours of pistachios and brioche. The acidity (even though it is a 1999) is lifting the wine on the mid palate giving it a wonderful mouthfeel. Well integrated wood aromas leading to a decadent finish tasting just like a glazed lemon tart... Wonderfully crafted wine! QC


Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Leflaive is the largest holder of Clavoillon, with 11.9 acres of vines that average 40 years of age. Vineyard Cultivation: Biodynamic since 1997 Soils: Clay, limestone Overall, the winter of ‘98–‘99 was a mild one. Spring was more extreme, with temperatures often hitting above-average for the time of year. Budding came early, but was halted by a cold spell in mid-April – thankfully there was no frost. Late April and early May were warm, and the vines started to grow quickly. May was dominated by stormy weather conditions, mixing heat and humidity, which encouraged mildew. Fortunately, Leflaive was able to treat the vines and the disease did not have an effect on the harvest. Early flowering indicated that harvest would begin in mid-September. Temperatures were generally high for the remainder of the summer, and the maturation of the grapes went smoothly. Harvest took place September 18–26. Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay Alcohol: 13.5%
