2018 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Pucelles"

SKU #1516226 93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles 1er Cru was one cuvée that was showing a little more reduction when I tasted the barrel sample. Skipping the aromatics, the palate is very well balanced with notes of orange peel and white peach, and a little more lime toward the finish compared to Les Combettes. Good length on the aftertaste and a little more viscosity. Very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A slightly riper and super-elegant nose offers up notes of petrol, white peach, floral and honeysuckle that are trimmed in discreet oak. The even more refined medium weight flavors also possess a wonderfully textured mouthfeel along with a bit more minerality before terminating in a palate coating, focused and strikingly long finale. This is also very classy and arguably even more stylish. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Domaine Leflaive own an extensive 2.8ha of this Premier Cru, with vines that run up the slope from bottom to top. Aged in 20% new wood, this is considerably tighter and more focused under new(ish) winemaker, Pierre Vincent, than it was in the past, sappy, taut, chiselled fruit flavours and appealing cinnamon spice. Needs more time in bottle. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles has also turned out very well, unwinding in the glass with aromas of fresh bread, pear, citrus oil, anise, yellow apple and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and nicely concentrated, it's deep and seamless, with an elegant, charming profile. Could this evolve like a modern-day version of the domaine's stunningly good 1982?

K&L Notes

95-98pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Planted between 1954and 1985. This has amazing purity, lift and life with all sorts of texture woven in, more white fruit, very fresh, some citrus notes, apple and peach together, all leading to a magical finish. This wine excites in every dimension. Tasted: November 2019."
