Reviews and Accolades

91-94 Points/Burghound
This is also sufficiently reduced to completely overshadow the underlying fruit. On the palate there is terrific, indeed almost painful, intensity to the medium weight flavors that flash the innate refinement of a fine Puligny before culminating in a very clean, sleek, bone-dry and chiseled finale. This is presently very tightly wound and a wine that definitely will need at least some patience. Excellent and this is a step up from its usual quality. *Burghound Outstanding!* 

93 Points/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon is lovely, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus zest and pear mingled with hints of white flowers, bread dough and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with racy acids and a fine-boned, elegant profile, it concludes with a long, saline finish.

93 Points/Vinous
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru has a delineated and tightly coiled nose with crushed stone-infused green apple, rather fresh considering the growing season, with hints of grass clipping. The palate is cohesive on the entry with a bitter lemon note that lends this Puligny tension; it's fresh and saline with a cohesive and persistent finish. Very classy and has immense promise. 

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 “
