This is also very fresh if restrained with relatively high-toned aromas of white peach, floral notes and lemon zest that carry over onto the rich, attractively well-delineated and delicious middle weight flavors. There is enough dry extract to coat the palate on the nicely persistent and again light mineral-suffused finish. I like the style and there is a bit more overall depth here compared to the Puligny villages.

Pale, bright yellow. A ripe fruit cocktail of a nose. Supple and soft, with a suggestion of alcoholic warmth that I did not pick up a year ago. Finishes smooth and persistent, but in a distinctly soft style. I found this a bit blowsy next to a sample of the village Puligny, which was in tank awaiting bottling. The latter wine, which conveyed a light touch to its white peach, spice and mineral flavors, may well merit 90 points in its finished form.

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
