  • Domaine Leflaive Mâcon Solutré – 2018 – Vinous – 90 Points

    The 2018 Mâcon-Solutré is a wine of nuance and understatement more than anything else. Lemon confit, orchard fruit, white flowers and sweet oak all grace this focused, mid-weight white Burgundy. Time in the glass brings out a range of more tropical flavors. Although the 2018 is a touch compact, the persistent finish makes up for that.
