This is a blend of several parcels throughout the appellation including some Premier Crus. It has the power of the appellation along with the elegant Leflaive house style. That makes for a fine structured wine with great acidity, apple and pineapple fruit and a strongly mineral aftertaste. Drink starting from 2019.
