SKU #1496796 91-94 points Wine Spectator

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An attractively layered nose combines lovely floral notes with those of citrus peel, pear and soft spice hints. The racy and tension-filled medium weight flavors possess excellent detail on the palate coating finish that is at once clean, dry and, minerally and youthfully austere. I would further observe that this is a wine that has made considerable progress over the last 10 years, and the 2018 is only the latest confirmation of that progress. In short, this is really quite promising. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of fresh peach, white flowers, citrus oil and green apples preface the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny wine that's racy and fine-boned, with lively acids, a delicate core of fruit and a chalky finish. This has none of the blockiness of yesteryear's Clavoillon. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru, Leflaive’s largest vineyard at 4.8 hectares, has a very perfumed bouquet with mirabelle, crushed pebble and a touch of sherbet blossoming from the nose. The well-balanced palate offers a touch of spice on the entry, good acidity, moderate depth and a suggestion of ginger toward the sappy finish.(NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "This is complex with a lees-infused feel to it, beautifully interwoven. Lively fruit bright and a fine sense of tension, with a little bit of contrasting orange blossom and greengage fruit. An interesting chat followed with Brice de la Morandière on the place of Clavoillon in the 1er cru hierarchy. He feels it has considerably advanced in the years since biodynamic farming has been employed. Tasted: November 2019."
