    A cool and equally pure nose offers up notes of citrus peel, white flowers, red grapefruit and subtle wood nuances. There is excellent energy to the medium weight flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel, all wrapped in a moderately firm, balanced and solidly persistent finish. This is a bit finer than it usually is and should also reward up to a decade of bottle age.

    The 2013 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon, which was bottled in June, has a well defined bouquet with flint and light smoky scents with just a hint of quince coming through with aeration. The palate is nicely poised with good weight on the entry, a touch of light honey and mandarin, poised if not persistent on the finish. I would afford this a couple of years in the cellar.

    (still a touch of unconverted malic acidity remaining): Bright medium yellow. Tight aromas of white peach, minerals and spices. Delivers good density with no undue weight, showing spicy cut to the stone fruit and saline mineral flavors. Ultimately a bit rounder than usual for this wine at this stage of its evolution but the long, bright, saline finish is perked up by a lemony edge and displays a lovely balance between minerality and acidity. Captivating lingering perfume too.

  • "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
