Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, January 2013
Rich and rounded, packed with yellow fruits and pineapple flavors, this is a warm, opulent wine, combining toast and fruit. True, there is some minerality, but this Meursault revels in its ripe fruit and generosity.

While noted for their Puligny wines, Domaine Leflaive farms four acres of vines just across the border in Meursault, capturing a pure expression of the stone fruit and limestone character of this vineyard, their sensitive farming amplifying the distinctions of the terroir in 2009. It’s an elegant wine on a grand scale, with the fresh juiciness of nectarine and the woodsy notes of pear skin. Check on this six to eight years from the vintage, as a partner for crab or langoustines.

Youthfully subdued, the 2009 has wet pebble and chalk character beneath the delicate lemon / lime and coriander seed aromas. The palate is tight and restrained at this stage with promising tension and a long minerally finish. Consider drinking this one from 2014+. 91+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Silky, dry and rich, with a distinctly honeyed ripeness. The juicy finish is buttressed by dusty minerality but this broad wine could nonetheless use a bit more mid-palate cut. These vines were planted in 1995 and 2004.

Lush and round, with moderately intense flavors of apple, peach and lime. It's accessible, tailing off on the finish. Drink now through 2016. – BS

A mild touch of reduction is not enough to stifle the otherwise elegant and cool aromas of roasted nut and citrus nuances that add breadth to the ripe orchard fruit aromas that introduce mineral-inflected and vibrant... A mild touch of reduction is not enough to stifle the otherwise elegant and cool aromas of roasted nut and citrus nuances that add breadth to the ripe orchard fruit aromas that introduce mineral-inflected and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess fine balance on the sappy round and delicious finish. This should drink well early but age well too.
