93 points, “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.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 

93 points, “The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru has a delineated and tightly coiled nose with crushed stone-infused green apple, rather fresh considering the growing season, with hints of grass clipping. The palate is cohesive on the entry with a bitter lemon note that lends this Puligny tension; it's fresh and saline with a cohesive and persistent finish. Very classy and has immense promise.” - Vinous 

The Clavoillon 2020 expression comes from one of four Premier Cru vineyards held under the Domaine Leflaive name. It is one of the most influential estates in Puligny-Montrachet and has been the leader in Burgundy’s biodynamic movement since 1997. 

This Premier Cru Burgundy has been aged for 12 months in 22% new oak, then is transferred to steel tanks where it continues to mature for a further six months. It is an intense, unctuous and elegant expression which combines richness and depth of fruit with refinement and perfect balance. Offering Leflaive’s signature notes of purity alongside lemon zest, white peach, beeswax, apple blossom, blanched almonds, white chocolate, praline, baguette, vanilla, jasmine tea and just a hint of sea salt, this complex, deeply decadent and smooth Chardonnay is at its very best. 

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.”
