2018 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet
A ripe, cool and pure nose possesses a lovely array of pear, white peach and subtle acacia wisps that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is both good volume and richness to the utterly delicious and seductively textured flavors that manage to possess a beguiling refinement on the clean and dry finish that offers very good persistence and especially so for a villages level wine.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Lively and charming, Leflaive's 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village delivers aromas of almond past, fresh pastry, white flowers and crisp orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's succulent and expressive, with an open-knit core, lively acids and a nicely defined finish.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village has a taut, crisp bouquet with scents of wet limestone, sea spray and green apple. There is fine delineation here, and more intensity than I was anticipating for a Village Cru. The palate is well balanced with subtle passion fruit and citrus notes on the entry, good weight in the mouth and fine acidity, though not as complex on the finish as other Village Crus I have tasted from Leflaive. Therefore I suspect this will be ideal for early drinking.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Pale lemon, a graceful elegant nose, with much more stuffing than most, still this attractive lime-juice character alongside the flesh, with very good length. Impressive density for a 2018 village wine.
