    ($145) Very pale color with a green cast. Complex aromas of lime, white peach, white flowers and crushed stone. Then silky, sweet and penetrating, with nicely integrated acidity contributing structure and verve. A linear, firmly built wine that really vibrates on the persistent, aromatic finish. Remy describes this wine as |more solid and larger-scaled than the 2004 but with similar acidity and minerality.| Classy and classic Puligny.

    A pretty and extremely fresh, bright and expressive nose offers up hints of white flower, peach and apple that precede the clean, intense, precise and energetic medium-bodied flavors that possess good cut and more precision than I usually see with this wine, all wrapped in a mildly austere and wonderfully long finish. This seems to have more |presence| than usual.

    All tasted from tank at the winery with winemaker Eric R‚my in Nov 2008. The wines are moved from barrel to cuve just before the harvest, so they usually spend about three to four months in tank. 20% new oak.Fine, delicate wet stones, very restrained on the nose. Tight and even a little bit sour in its citrus freshness. Elegant and long but needs a bit more time. (JH)

    Not an effusive aroma, with touches of citrus and the sea. On the palate, this is concentrated and seamless, with balance and harmony. Just needs time to show all its features. Offers fine length, with a chalky feel at the end.

    The Leflaive 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon ' a significant portion of which, like other crus here, is worked by horse 'smells of fresh apple, melon, lemon zest, and hints of brown spices. Lush and lusciously fruited on the palate it combines apple, peach, and melon with a pungently bitter-sweet suggestion of orange marmalade. With less lift and refreshment and a touch of warmth vis a vis other wines in this group, it partly compensates by dint of sheer richness of flavor and texture. I would be inclined to plan on enjoying it within 5-6 years.

  • "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
