Reviews for 2009 Leflaive, Domaine Meursault Sous le Dos d'Ane

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
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.

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.
