Produced from biodynamically grown grapes (as are all the Olivier Leflaive family grand and premier crus), this is a gorgeous, opulent wine. It has richness and great intensity as well as fine acidity and crisp apple fruits. Toast and vanilla come from the wood aging. The wine is so generous and packed with fruit as well as a strong mineral texture. Drink from 2022.
