    The 2015 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles has quite a complex bouquet: minerals and gun flint at first, underneath hints of almond and honeysuckle lending more richness than the Puligny Les Combettes or the FolatiAres. There is just a slight reduction here

    Cask sample. Rich and dense and classic. Lovely density and green freshness. Long and very correct.

    In contrast to the relative expressiveness of most of the prior wines, this is much more reserved and only grudgingly reveals its aromas of honeysuckle, essence of pear and soft oak nuances. The caressing and very refined middle weight flavors possess a highly seductive mouth feel that also brims with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the beautifully complex and persistent finale that, like the Combettes, is unusually dry relative to what is common for the vintage. Class in a glass.

    Pale, bright yellow. Reticent, classic aromas of peach flesh and pit with smoky minerals. Deeper and more powerful in the middle palate than the Folatieres but tightened in the early going by strong lemony acidity and thus less silky and refined today. The firm-edged finish reveals a repeating lemony element and a touch of phenolics. This will need time. New winemaker Pierre Vincent told me that this wine has 4.8 grams per liter acidity and a very low pH of 3.05. - Stephen Tanzer

  • "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
