From recent history, it has taken on enormous proportions in the world of collectible wines, reaching stratospheric ratings in guidebooks and being chosen as a promise of Burgundy. Respect for the terroir is evidenced by biodynamics, practiced for more than 20 years, since the era of Pascal Marchand, succeeded by Pierre Vincent (today Domaine Leflaive) to propose more ethereal wines, of delicacy and fruit purity, maintained by Sylvie Poillot . The Domaine's arsenal of vineyards is impressive. Highlight for the Clos Blanc de Vougeot, considered by Jasper Morris MW the best white on the Côte de Nuits.
Montiottes hautes (1,052 ha), plot at the top of Clos Vougeot, planted in 1946, with greater limestone and stony content. Baudes Saint-Martin (0.3617 ha) further down the hill.
48% of whole bunches were used. Low extraction maceration lasting 22 days. 16 months in French oak, only 28% new, from different cooperages and lightly toasted.
Jasper Morris 93-95 points:
“Medium deep purple. Brisk fresh red fruit. As often at this domaine, the wine starts quietly then builds in intensity, really kicking on without changing out of the red fruit register. Substantial.
