  • Burghound | Rating: 94

    A strikingly elegant nose presents a broad range of yellow and white orchard fruits with ample honeysuckle, spice, lilac and citrus nuances. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is notably finer and wonderfully seductive before concluding in a palate coating, saline and linear finish that possesses superb depth and length. Like the Combettes this is clearly built-to-age and while it will certainly be capable of rewarding longer-term cellaring it should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years.

    Bright, light yellow. Deeper aromas of ripe peach, honey and clove, complicated by lemon and char notes. Densely packed but a bit youthfully narrow on the front half, then really expands in the back, with noteworthy sucrosite nicely supported by sneaky mineral intensity. Long on the aftertaste. Less showy today than the Folatieres but dense with material and built to age.

    The 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Pucelles has a more resinous/waxy bouquet that its |siblings| at the moment: complex and yet somehow, unassuming unlike the Combettes '13. It opens nicely in the glass to reveal orange sorbet and limestone scents. The palate is fresh and nicely poised with a keen line of acidity, touches of bitter lemon and a healthy dash of spice enlivening the saline finish. Everything you want from a Puligny Pucelles really.

  • "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
