Domaine Leflaive Pouilly-Fuissé En Vigneraie — 2019 – Decanter – 95 Points
Delightful aromas of green apple and chamomile, yet there is a gentle touch of honey as well. Superbly balanced, crisp and clean, with appreciable richness but no heaviness.
Domaine Leflaive Pouilly-Fuissé En Vigneraie — 2019 – Bughound – 93 Points
Ripe and very fresh aromas are comprised by notes of poached pear, green apple citrus ring and a hint of mineral reduction. There is fine richness and solid concentration to the middle weight flavors that possesses a caressing mouthfeel and exhibit fine length on the clean, dry and balanced finale.
