  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

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

    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 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.

    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.

  • "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
