Estate Notes

Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles 2008 was purchased in its original case.

Domaine Leflaive needs little introduction to wine lovers. It has been described as Burgundy’s greatest white wine domaine, and while this is a pretty strong claim, it is a justifiable one.

Leflaive has been bio-dynamic since 1997 and was managed by the late and great Anne-Claude. Anne-Claude had the greatest respect for Burgundy tradition and was deeply concerned about the irreversible damage caused to Burgundy soil by fertilisers and pesticides. She followed organic methods and helped establish a winemaking school at the domaine in Puligny-Montrachet (the Ecole du Vin et des Terroirs), in order to educate wine professionals. Her pursuit of excellence in winemaking brought her many accolades, including Decanter Magazine’s top white winemaker in 2006 and Winemakers' Winemaker by the Institute of Masters of Wine in 2014 – a massive achievement. Her legacy lives on...

Reviews

“Pale, bright medium yellow. Ripe peach, minerals, flowers and a whiff of honey on the nose, lifted by spicy and peppery nuances. Concentrated and densely packed, with lemon and lime fruit flavors framed and lifted by minerals and spices. This nicely juicy wine finishes with noteworthy aromatic lift.” Stephen Tanzer

“Broad and powerful, with a firm underlying structure that allows the lemon, toast and baking spices to take center stage, followed by an excellent finish. Nonetheless, this is balanced toward the structure now, needing time to reveal its full potential.” Wine Spectator
