Domaine Lefaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon Chardonnay 2019 750ML

Critical Acclaim

91-94 Points/Allen Meadows, Burghound
An overtly floral suffused nose displays notes of pear compote, citrus confit and subtle spice wisps. There is excellent vibrancy to the attractively textured medium weight flavors that also exude a refreshing salinity on the citrusy, dry and notably more complex finish that is perceptibly firmer. This should age well. *Burghound Outstanding!*

93 Points/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon has turned out very nicely, mingling aromas of pear and citrus oil with hints of wheat toast, fresh bread and hazelnuts in an inviting bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, with terrific cut and a long, saline finish, it's taut and incisive, showing promise for the cellar. Pierre Vincent told me that Domaine Leflaive began their harvest in 2019 on September 11, preferring not to start too precipitously and rather to wait for full maturity. Alcohol levels range between 13.5% and 14.5%, accompanied by low pHs, and as usual, élevage began with a year in barrel (from a variety of coopers, including Séguin Moreau and Chassin) followed by six months or so in tank on the lees before bottling under Diam 30. Concentrated and incisive, this is an impressive range of wines that are clearly built to age (indeed, several cuvées showed a touch of youthful reduction out of the gates) and which confirm that Domaine Leflaive is back at the top of its game. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended. 

93 Points/Vinous
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru has an austere nose that demands coaxing from the glass; struck flint and sea spray scents, cool, calm and collected. The palate is taut on the entry, then fans out with glee, notes of dessicated orange peel, white peach and tangerine, a lovely bitterness that counterbalances the concentration on the finish. Exccellent.

About Domaine Lefaive

Founded in 1717, Domaine Leflaive has developed a remarkable history throughout generations of the Leflaive family as producers striving to link tradition and innovation. With an astounding 40 ha to their name, the domaine has acquired parcels in four of the five Montrachet grand crus and four of the best premier crus. Beyond just the impeccable pedigree of its vineyard sites and biodynamic practices, the skill and care of the winemaking at Domaine Leflaive distinguishes it from the rest. The combination of these efforts has produced remarkable results, further elevating the standard for one of the world’s greatest wines. “The fabulous expression of the Chardonnay is far from being limited to Puligny-Montrachet. This is why, we decided to develop an extension of our estate in the Maconnais. We also decided in the last few years to develop partnerships with carefully selected vignerons in the Cote Chalonnaise and the Cote de Beaune. In our Macon vineyard, we apply the same philosophy of the Domaine and all our vines are worked in biodynamically, by our dedicated team. The harvest is manual and the musts transported to Puligny-Montrachet for fermentations and élevage in a specific cellar. The wines are located in Macon-Verzé, Macon-Solutré, Pouilly-Fuissé and are sold under the brand name ‘Domaines Leflaive’. In order to distinguish between Domaine Leflaive in Puligny Montrachet and the Domaines Leflaive in Macon and for long-term partnerships, we have created a specific identity that draws on our common history “
