1996 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles

Posted by Ian McFadden

Leflaive's '96s are legendary. It's as simple as that

Over the past six months, we've tasted a handful of Leflaive's '96s. They've been stunning. Without a doubt, one of the best bottles we tasted was the Pucelles.

Of course, this isn't that much of a surprise. Pucelles is Leflaive's top 1er Cru, and arguably Puligny's best 1er Cru. Like Meursault Perrieres, Pucelles can easily compete with Grand Crus.

Pucelles possesses a riveting grandeur and surpreme elegance. The depth, clarity and overall completeness of the '96 is captivating. It's one of the most compelling white Burgs that I've tasted this year. The breeding, detail and complexity is just that great.

I'm really happy to have enough to make this small offering. Only a very small group of Burgundy supporters will be receiving this. Still, I urge you to reply quickly. I expect these to quickly disappear.
