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 95
"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." -Allen Meadow

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"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." -Neal Martin

Robert Parker

RP 94
"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?" -William Kelley

Decanter

D 94
"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." -Tim Atkin
