The 2021 vintage from Domaine Leflaive, one of the most famous white Burgundy producers, has been released in the UK.
Volumes coming to the market are reportedly down between 50% and 85% depending on site.
Domaine Leflaive was ranked third in this year’s Power 100 list, which ranks the most powerful brands in fine wine.
Domaine Leflaive, Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 2021 was released at £12,780 per 12×75, a 25% increase on the 2020 release price (£10,200), which has since risen 148% in value.
