Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles 2007
96 points, “A powerful wine, showing rich, opulent Chardonnay. The spice and acidity crispen the wine, but leave the powerful fruit in all its glory.” – Wine Enthusiast
95 points, “One of the most profound premier crus to be found in this great white Burgundy vintage.” – John Gilman
94 points, “A lacy, long and stylish wine of finesse rather than power and 2007 is undoubtedly one of the better vintages for the Leflaive Pucelles. Outstanding.” – Allen Meadows, Burghound
94 points, “There is a Chevalier-like sense of salt and stone shimmering through curtains of fruit in the finish… Hints of honey and toasted almond well up as this takes on air, suggesting an additional dimension of future richness.” – Wine Advocate
Those reviews, including comparisons to Grand Cru wines, tell you that Domaine Leflaive’s Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Pucelles 2007 is something very special.
Organic, biodynamic and iconic, Domaine Leflaive is the doyen of Puligny-Montrachet producing “the kind of wine that should be delivered by Grace Kelly” according to the Wall Street Journal. The attention to detail invested in these Chardonnays “set standards for white Burgundy that few other estates can approach”, and in the words of Wine Advocate: “If you do not like Leflaive’s wines, then you do not like white Burgundy.”
Displaying Leflaive’s signature purity, this Puligny-Montrachet is awe-inspiring stuff. Expect apple, pear, lemon zest, orchard blossom, vanilla, chalk, honeysuckle, lily, peach, oak, honey, roasted nuts and so much more…
