2020 Domaine Leflaive Puligny Montrachet Clavoillon



93The Wine Advocate

...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.

93Wine Spectator

This white evokes earth and stone flavors, along with peach, lemon and spice notes. Dense, with light tannins emerging on the butterscotch finish. A bit rigid now, yet vibrant and long.

17Jancis Robinson

Really quite lithe, with lemon-delineated, softly baked apple and a little oak spice. Lovely lively acidity and freshness.


Domaine Leflaive

Domaine Leflaive, in Puligny-Montrachet, traces its roots back 2,000 years to vineyards planted during the Roman era. More specifically, the domaine was founded in the 1920s when Joseph Leflaive, an engineer by training, began replanting the family vineyards with improved grape vines. He sold wine to friends and later made it into a business. After his death in 1953 his children ran the estate. The business is still owned and managed by the Leflaive family and its white Burgundies are renowned for their quality. With 58 acres of vineyards planted entirely to Chardonnay, the domaine produces fewer than 4,000 cases of Montrachet annually. Since 1998 Domaine Leflaive has been farmed entirely according to biodynamic principles, which, among other things, means that no pesticides, chemicals or artificial fertilizers of any kind are used.
