Vincent Leflaive was the uncle of Olivier Leflaive. The wine, from old vines, is made in homage to him. Impressively rich and full-bodied, it has some toastiness as well as fresh acidity and apple and citrus flavors. It's tight at the moment, showing a steely character that will soften. Drink from 2016.
