Over the past couple of decades Domaine Leflaive has re-established itself as probably the most important address for winemaking in the world famous village of Puligny-Montrachet. They accomplished this through a singular attention to growing and making the very best Chardonnay possible.

Indeed, Domaine Leflaive grows only Chardonnay and nothing else. The entire estate has been converted to biodynamic farming. The winemaking is extremely precise, gentle, and driven by a passion to showcase how this extremely popular grape can perfectly capture the subtle nuances of terroir.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 93
"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." -Allen Meadow

"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." -Neal Martin

Robert Parker

RP 92
"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." -William Kelley
