Burghound Issue: Issue 19

(from two very large parcels of vines totaling over 3 ha) Among the Leflaive 1ers, my usual preference is either for the Combettes or the Folatières but not in 2003 as the Pucelles is a really lovely and understated effort of sublime quality. A ripe but ultra pure nose of white flower and honeysuckle aromas leads to seductively textured, dense and sweet flavors that offer excellent detail and a somewhat reserved, beautifully long finish. This is the best of these 1ers and it too should benefit from a few years in bottle.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 122

($175) Palish yellow color. Reticent aromas of orange oil and vanillin oak. Quite dry and reserved, with a fine-grained texture and notes of peach and flowers. This vineyard produces wine with delicate aromas and is always among the most affected by the bottling, notes Morey.

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 158

Aromatically demure, the 2003 Puligny-Montrachet Pucelles (white) displays a supple, easygoing character. Harmonious, soft, and medium-bodied, this velvety-textured wine reveals minerals dusted with vanilla in its expressive character.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

A full-bore, opulent white, with vanilla pastry, apple tart, spice and citrus notes mingling in the creamy texture. There's a fresh quality here, along with intensity and length. It's a tad hot at this stage, but well-balanced for 2003.
