Medium yellow. Ripe stone fruit and honey on the nose. Fat and sweet but not quite as large-scaled as the Combettes, showing stone fruit and spice flavors. Best today on the insidiously long finish, which really saturates the palate with flavor. Plenty of verve here; still, I'd serve most of these 2009s a bit cooler than usual.

The first, going upwards, to exhibit the Leflaive trademark struck-match character on the nose. Very pure and bright fruit. Polished and bone dry and savoury. Already recognisable as a Leflaive wine even though there is lots of evolution to come. Quite dry and pure and majestic. Juicy.

The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet Pucelles emerges from the glass with crystalline purity in its finely chiseled fruit. It possesses striking mid-palate energy and focus, with sweet floral notes that add lift on the finish. This is a marvelously symmetrical, well-balanced wine loaded with sheer class and personality. Best of all, the Pucelles offers tremendous potential for the future.

Enticing, with peach and pear flavors, tinged by oak spice. Refined and elegant, yet with intensity, followed by a soft finish.

About This Producer


"If the blessed slopes of the Cote d'Or are home to the ultimate expression of Chardonnay, then Anne-Claude Leflaive could be regarded as the magician, some might use the word "shaman", who can conjure wine like no other from this propitious terroir." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
