"Aromas of white peach, flowers and pastry cream introduce the 2017 Auxey-Duresses Blanc, a medium-bodied, incisive wine that appears to lack a little concentration, though it's also more introverted than many of Leflaive's 2017s."

"This village makes enticing, approachable Chardonnay. This wine fits that description, with intense freshness, acidity and citrus flavors. With its light touch of wood, the wine is ready to drink."
