A riper but still quite fresh nose displays notes of white peach, floral, citrus and a whiff of the exotic. Yet again there is excellent volume to the sappy mouth coating flavors that also exude evident minerality on the lingering and well-balanced finish that isn’t quite as firm or complex. Still this is certainly promising and should reward mid-term cellaring.

The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières offers that trademark struck-flint tincture that one often finds with Leflaive’s wines. Very good tension here, if not the most intense aromas on the block. The palate is well balanced with a sense of “rondeur” on the entry. This feels caressing in the mouth: hints of white peach, white pepper and a spicy, almost fiery finish that lingers. I can envisage this drinking early, but it has the substance to give a dozen years of pleasure. What you might call a “sunny” Puligny.
