      The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon has a lively nose with some lovely slate-like aromas drifting from the glass, followed by blackcurrant leaf and citrus lemon. The palate is well balanced with a light, slightly oily texture, moderate acidity, building in power toward the finish that never quite slips into fifth gear, at least not at this stage.

      Rich, agricultural nose. Golden texture and very satisfying. Lots to chew on and some very obvious fruit even if there is nothing remotely sweet about it. Welcoming.

      Enough reduction is present to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is a similar sense of energy to the slightly rounder and softer medium-bodied flavors that aren't quite as mineral-driven or complex but do offer fine persistence on the balanced finish. This should be approachable young if desired.

  • "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
