Domaine Leflaive Clavoillon Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru
(2013 Vintage) Manual harvesting with grape sorting and optimization of the choice of date for a parcel tracking maturity.
Robert ParkerThe 2014 Puligny Montrachet Village Cru offers lilting dewy green apple and wet limestone aromas on the nose, underneath subtle scents of orange blossom lending more complexity as it opens in the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh with a twist of bitter lemon on the entry. This is well balanced with good weight, plenty of energy on the tip of the tongue with a pleasant saline finish. It does not quite possess the drive of the premier crus, although there is a pleasant spicy note that pops up on the aftertaste. Tasted December 2016.
Wine SpectatorA racy style, this white is sleek and intense, with acacia and lime blossom notes leading the way for lemon, peach, spice and mineral flavors. Harmonious and long, with a mouthwatering finish. Delicious now, but should be better in a year. Best from 2018 through 2028. 127 cases imported. -BS
