2009 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet ‘Les Combettes’ 1er Cru


The roots of the Leflaive family go back to 1717 when Claude Leflaive took up residence in Puligny-Montrachet, intent upon cultivating several acres of vineyards. The domaine, in its present form, was created by Joseph Leflaive between the years of 1910 and 1930, as a result of his successive purchases of vineyards and houses.
Today, the domaine extends over 24 hectares (59.3 acres) in Puligny-Montrachet, of which 4.8 hectares (11.9 acres) are grands crus and 10.8 hectares (26.7 acres) are premiers crus, all growing one varietal: Chardonnay. Since 2004 the domaine has expanded into the Mâconnais and cultivates some 20 hectares 49.4 acres) in Mâcon-Verzé and Solutré-Pouilly.

A very ripe yellow fruit and floral infused nose complements to perfection the rich, full-bodied and powerful flavors that also possess an opulent mid-palate, all wrapped in a palate staining and seductively textured finish. This is a stylish ’09 with plenty of palate coating dry extract that imparts a suave mouth feel yet there is enough supporting acidity such that this avoids any sense of heaviness.

91+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet Combettes (from the Meursault side) comes across as quite closed at first. This is rather inward, but then begins to blossom in the glass over time. Still, this is relatively taut style for the year, with plenty of energy and drive. I can see the Combettes meriting a higher score if it fleshes out with further bottle age.
