Château De Puligny Montrachet

Domaine Leflaive

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2002

Great looking bottle, bought on release. Decanted for a few hours, then taken to Saison in SF. Canary yellow gold color, looks young and youthful. Enticing sweet fruit nose. Notes of citrus, kiwi, quince, tan spice, white acacia flowers and wet river stone. Huge impact on the first sip - massive core of fruit, held up by lots of acidity and structure. This has everything going for it, and can easily get better over the next 5-10 years. Hopefully my other bottles of this are equal to this great showing. 96+ — 16 days ago

Yes it was great. Slight reduction and a finish that lasts forever. Leah said it was the best white wine she had ever had. Got it for a song of a price on a list.

Nez de pierre à fusils et fleur lourde mais aussi un peu d évolution
Bouche très ample peut être trop au début plus dense en cœur de bouche et finale un peu fatigué
Mauvais achat je pense

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Matchstick nose. Notes of apricot, citrus, white stone/limestone, petrol, tan spice. Massive acidity in the mouth, matched by a ton of fruit and structure. This evolved all night, getting better and better. Guessed 99 Leflaive Batard. 96+ — 13 days ago

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1996

Tasted blind. Light gold color, a little lighter than the BBM next to it. Similar nose. Notes of citrus, petrol, wood, tan spice, some apricot and some white flowers. Massive richness in the mouth. Glycerol. More power and a little less acidity than the BBM, but over the night this ran ahead of it's peer. Guessed 99 Leflaive BBM. 97+ — 13 days ago

Clavoillon Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

For me the 2017 vintage marked Leflaive’s return to stardom, after (arguably) 2004. I can’t believe this is the warm 2018. It’s stunningly elegant, finessed and pure with zero fat or potential “blockiness” of some 2018 white burgs. It’s layered with gorgeous perfumed aromatics of citrus blossoms, lilies, stone fruit, exotic spice and the perfect amount of reduction we love. The palate has killer tension, vibrancy, racy lemony acids and a lovely texture that gives way to its focused, spice tinged and persistent finish. So good! — 21 days ago
