Ex Estate in 2019
1993 Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive
Leflaive owns 0.08ha of Montrachet, which generally yields about 300 bottles. This single parcel, believed to have been planted in the 1950s, lies within the Chassagne-Montrachet sector, very close to the lane that separates Le Montrachet from Bâtard-Montrachet.
After careful sorting in the vineyard, the wine was pressed in pneumatic presses, then fermented in a single new barrel, with regular stirring of the lees until the end of the year. The wine was then aged for a total of one year in the same barrel, before being decanted into a stainless steel vat for the second winter.
