Other Reviews....
Here the reduction is sufficient to overshadow the fruit. There is even better volume to the sleek and delicious middleweight flavors that are less mineral-driven but more powerful and slightly more persistent and bone-dry finish that is also exceptionally well-balanced. This is excellent and I would go so far as to observe that it's the best vintage for the Clavoillon in a long time. It is typically considered to be less interesting than the other 1ers (and not without reason) in the Leflaive portfolio and while it doesn't surpass them in 2021, it is most impressive nonetheless. Drink through 2029+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2021 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon is youthfully reserved, unwinding in the glass with aromas of pear and green apple mingled with toasted nuts, freshly baked bread and iodine. Medium-bodied, tangy and electric, with racy acids and a searingly saline finish, it will age with grace. Drink 2027 - 2040.

The 2021 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru has a very fine bouquet with dew-speckled green apples, petrichor and lime gradually unfolding in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with an almost piercing line of acidity, yet it remains very well-balanced with ample weight on the sapid finish. Very fine. Drink 2025-2042.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Rather a severe nose, a form of reduction, possibly allied to sulphur. This soon cleans up. I asked for a second pour of this wine, and it was totally clean. This is more reserved with a depth of fruit that impresses, with also good variation, complexity, all white fruit, doesn’t have any specific citrus mote, A little barrel toast complements rather than interferes. Impressive length. Drink from 2026-2031.
