Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Léandre L'Homme Lion, 2017 | Mâconnais, Burgundy
Region: Mâconnais, Burgundy
Farming: Organic certified
Tasting Note: Bright, vivid with great verve and energy. The palate is rich and salty with a firm backbone and insane length and intensity. You just want to keep drinking it in order to get to grips with all the nuance and infinite layers of complexity.
Groundbreaking, spectacular and incredibly fine white Burgundy. Knocking the socks off many a top-tier 1er cru in the Côte de Beaune.
Background: There is just one barrel of this wine made. With 43 months ageing there is incredible poise, texture and precise reduction. There is no added sulphur and the wine is incredibly stable, in part due to the long ageing.
Serving: Cold - but not too cold! (10–12°C).
