Meursault Sous Le Dos D'Ane Domaine Leflaive 2016 (750ML)
90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane has a strict and yes, unsurprisingly Puligny-like bouquet that is taut and linear. The palate is actually more expressive than the nose, with walnut and orange zest notes, admirable weight and penetration with a vein of spice and lemongrass toward the finish. Once the aromatics fine their voice this could be a very interesting proposition." 12/17
90 Points, Stephen, Tanzer, Vinous: "(these vines now average about 17 years of age, according to director Brice de la Morandière, as a lot of replanting was done in 1998 and 1999, with the rest of the vines taken out in 2002 and replanted in 2004): Ripe aromas of yellow peach and hazelnut. Not particularly dense or deep but tactile and thick, with an element of minerality providing lift. Finishes with good texture and length. The yield here was healthy, as these vines were not affected by frost." 9/18
90-93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "There is ample citrus influence to the markedly floral-inflected nose that flashes hints of roasted nut and oak toast. The racy, intense and much stonier medium-bodied flavors possess fine delineation and excellent depth on the refined, focused and impressively long and youthfully firm finish. Lovely juice." 06/18
90 Points, William Kelley, Decanter: "The lone Meursault in the cellar, which really has more in common with Puligny La Garenne than it does any Meursault, is successful in this challenging vintage. It reveals a nose of pear, apple and lemon oil, while on the palate the wine is ample, pure and chalky, with moderate intensity and depth." 10/17
