Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes 2014
95 points, “This precise white exudes apple, lemon, stone and sweet spice aromas and flavours. Balanced and vibrant, with a bracing finish of lemon and apple.” – Wine Spectator
Domaine Leflaive sets the benchmark for Puligny-Montrachet. Robert Parker says “no one should pass up a chance to purchase villages Puligny […] from this estate.” And when it comes from 2014 - Wine Advocate’s highest ever rated vintage for white Burgundy – it slips into seriously must-have territory.
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.”
Adding further resonance – as if this wine needed it – this was the last vintages produced before the sad and untimely death of the legendary Anne-Claude Leflaive in 2015. And 2014 proved a fitting tribute, producing a stunning vintage for white Burgundy, one for which expert critic Allen Meadows advised you “should by the 2014s… I would suggest not only buying but buying aggressively.”
Domaine Lefaive Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Combettes 2014 is handpicked from a 1.8-acre plot, matured in oak for 12 months followed by a further 6 months in tank, and is built for the long haul. Broad and rich with fascinating apricot aromas, this vibrant Chardonnay displays ripe fruit and a finish that seems almost unending. A masterclass in finesse and energy.
