2012 Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet

"Pale, bright yellow. Tight, reserved nose hints at hazelnut and nutty oak; the fruit is shy today following the recent end of the malolactic fermentation. Dense and tactile, with intense peach and lemon flavors supported by strong minerality. This rich wine boasts lovely balance from the outset but its back-end density and chewiness suggest that it will reward medium-term aging. My sample left behind a whiff of white truffle in the empty glass. 92-95"
