Reviews

  • Domaine Leflaive Pouilly Fuissé La Chaneau – 2019 – Decanter – 93 Points

    Highlights the lemon peel and pomelo fruit of great purity with delightful salty, mineral notes. The wine is crisp and fine on the palate.

  • Domaine Leflaive Pouilly Fuissé La Chaneau – 2019 – Bughound – 93 Points

    Mild reduction blurs the nuance of what appears to be ripe white orchard aromas. There is both excellent volume and salinity to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a bracingly dry, complex and well-balanced finale.
