    A slightly riper nose reveals notes of spiced yellow fruit and white flower aromas that merge seamlessly into the seductively textured, precise and beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract. The almost salty finish is not quite as refined as the Folatieres but it is more complex and slightly more persistent. This is clearly built-to-age and will need at least 6 to 8 years to be approachable and should amply reward from 12 to 15.

    The 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Combettes might well be the most startling wine from Anne-Claude and her team this year, one that probably transcends this propitious vineyard. It has an expressive set of aromatics like the Folatieres, a little more 'fiery' at this stage perhaps, vivacious and defined with hints of lemon curd and white peach. The palate is voluminous and powerful with superb acidity and great depth. This is a Combettes with a lot of ambition and constitutes one of my favorites from the domaine this year.

    (tasted from a new barrel that had finished its malo; the final premier cru blends will have 20% new oak): Bright yellow. Lemon and yellow stone fruits on the nose, lifted by a floral note and showing some charred oak. Fatter and more floral than the Clavoillon, with the wood element contributing to an impression of sucrosite . Lovely texture and concentration here, and a subtly long finish.

  • "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
