Puligny Montrachet, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Leflaive

Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1986

Medium gold in color, slightly darker than the 86 Bonneau du Martray next to it. Heavy in the glass. Sweet floral nose. Notes of sweet kiwi fruit, lemon curd, apple cider and white acacia flowers. Lacked acidity at first but with many hours of air this powered up. Last sip was the best. I preferred the other whites to this, but was happy to see this improve so much during the evening. We discussed this being Vincent Leflaive’s last vintage, and sadly this was the last bottle in my cellar of 86 Leflaive. (Bday 4 of 12) — 4 days ago

Lovely stuff. Pale straw, lemons, oily white flowers. Quite rich. A soft salinity and minerality underneath. — 7 days ago

La Truffière Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay

Ginkgo smash rot blows off to wildflower honey and brioche, tart pineapple, chamomile, yellow apple, ginger nose. Tart starfruit, lemon zest, lime pith, lemon-lime peel; wound a little tight. Lemongrass and a green onion element I expect to vanish. Ginseng and glittering lemon oil and racing pith for a long salivating finish. Opened rich and unctuous, but narrowed to focused acid blast.

Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1986

Medium gold color, heavy like motor oil in a glass. Killer, exotic nose. Notes of citrus, sweet lemon, cardamom, tan spice, some cinnamon and some iodine. Rich and palate-staining in the mouth. So much power. Finish goes on forever. This was better earlier in the evening, and for me declined a bit as it got more air… different from the other two 86s tonight which instead powered up with more oxygen. My last bottle of this as well. Killer juice! (Bday 5 of 12) — 4 days ago

One of the better white wines, if not the best. The complexity and acidity were firing in unison, aromatics exploding from the glass! The fruit was beautiful and this wine still has plenty of life ahead of it. — 9 days ago

Very good but not great. Honeyed, sweet hayfield, cream, mint; prettyclassic nose. Medium bodied, rounded, fleshy. Lacks an incisive acid backbone. Perhaps grilled prawns awas not the best pairing choice.... — 17 hours ago

Just good, but i am not impressed.
After a while it feels disjointed
I don't think i am going to age anymore Matrot from now on, I'd rather enjoy when the wines are younger.

Killer nose. Buttery and rich with gorgeous iodine and saline. Some green apple fruit as well. Herbs. Tree bark. Super complex. Really just lights out aromas. The good 15’s really are just tremendous and this is one of them. A wow nose. Gorgeously complex and rich with awesome purity and freshness. Has the 15 richness but also so much freshness from the minerality. Really elegant and such focus. Sweet spices on the mid palate and so well knit and put together. Such length. Wow. Superb concentration. Great structure that ensures at least another decade. Best 15 white burg I’ve had yet. — 7 minutes ago
