2020 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet ‘Clavoillon’ 1er Cru

$750.00

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.

Description

91-94 Points Allen Meadows
This is also sufficiently reduced to completely overshadow the underlying fruit. On the palate there is terrific, indeed almost painful, intensity to the medium weight flavors that flash the innate refinement of a fine Puligny before culminating in a very clean, sleek, bone-dry and chiseled finale. This is presently very tightly wound and a wine that definitely will need at least some patience. Excellent and this is a step up from its usual quality.

93 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon is lovely, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus zest and pear mingled with hints of white flowers, bread dough and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with racy acids and a fine-boned, elegant profile, it concludes with a long, saline finish.
