First time having this largely under the radar producer in the US.

The nose reveals; lots of green and golden apple, Meyer lemon, lime candy, ripe pineapple, touch of white peach, green melon, butter, cream, honeysuckle, waxy notes, caramel, sea fossils, saline, mixed greens, light herbaceous notes, limestone, white spice, citrus blooms and yellow lilies.

The body is full, rich, lush and waxy. It has excellent mouthfeel. Especially, at around $40. Green and golden apple, Meyer lemon, lime candy, ripe pineapple, touch of white peach, green melon, butter, buttered popcorn, cream, honeysuckle to full honey, waxy notes, caramel, sea fossils, saline, mixed greens, light herbaceous notes, limestone, gritty/edgy, gray, volcanic minerals, really nice, powdery chalkiness, more white spice on the palate with some heat, citrus blooms and yellow lilies. The round acidity is beautiful. The long, rich, lush, waxy, rich, nicely balanced finish persists endlessly. Excellent wine for the money. Just misses 94.

Happy 4th of July eve to everyone in the US.

Domaine Leflaive

Clavoillon Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2000

Bright and straw gold. A nose that has subtle impact. Notes of citrus fruit, pebble stones, pit fruit and some spice. Fruit is more present than the acidity, even with more air. A decent drink but lacking the complexity and power you want in a Leflaive 1er. — 10 days ago

Quite full, oaken and ripe but a great showing. Clean aromatics and dense flavors, without question shows the richness of the vintage but fresh and engaging — 10 days ago

Killer lineup. Great notes.

Demessey

Les Pucelles Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 1995

Unreal dark butterscotch or honey color. Marcona almonds and honeycomb on the nose with a very slight hint of citrus. I don’t think I have ever had a 24 year old white wine. Nice flavors of lemon on the front with butterscotch and honey flavors evolving mid-palate. Beautiful acidity with a very pleasant honey finish. Celebrating my birthday tonight and this wine was fantastic. — 3 days ago

Domaine Henri Boillot

Clos de la Mouchère Monopole Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

A pretty, expressive nose. Lime, rock pools, white flowers. On the palate this is vivacious and punchy, with just right ripeness of fruit, loads of lean minerality and a great long finish. Not into secondary stages yet but this is in a great place for a young white burg. — 7 days ago

I also drank this vintage recently. It’s a yearly purchase. Great wine. Nice note.

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

This was terrific from the first taste. Lemon curd, brioche with modest oak accents. Then, a combination of lemon-pear creamy goodness framed by electric acidity. The length and concentration is compelling. Really fine. — 14 days ago

Tactile and deep reduction, perhaps over the top, but I kept returning here and was transfixed by the oak, acidity and energy. I have a feeling the reduction in this wine is beyond limit for some, but I loved how gracefully it has become, integrated into oak and with such searing acidity. Tremendous showing — 10 days ago

I have decided that the whole pairing of drinks with food is really over rated. Really getting into pairing drinks with other drinks. This combo does not suck (for the record the negroni needs extra Campari to make it really kick). — 4 days ago

I think we will be mixing lots of drinks next week.

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Joseph Faiveley Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Light straw color. Toasted bread and baking spices on the nose that carries onto the palate with lemon and butterscotch flavors as well. Lingering citrus and baked almonds on the finish. A very nice young wine which should improve with age. — 6 days ago

Jean-Marc Pillot

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

Light straw color. A fresh nose with bright sweet lemon, young corn, white flowers, and a chalky minerality on the nose. On the palate some honeyed sweetness, very pure and complex and long. Over time in the glass this is fleshing out and getting lusher. Really good. — 12 days ago
