By all accounts, Leflaive's 2019s are some of the top white Burgundies of the vintage.
The wines have showstopping elegance, incredible complexity, and serious cut and structure. The total package is jaw-dropping.
There's no getting around the fact that Clavoillon can be overlooked among Leflaive's 1er Crus. It doesn't have the distinctive power of Pucelles or the intense minerality of Combettes. With that said, catch Clavoillon in the right vintage, and you'll be wowed by its harmony and the mineral delicacy of its spine.
The 2019 Clavoillon is one of those vintages. The Clavoillon has a stunning brilliance in its delivery of minerality and citrus flavors. It offers extreme balance and loads of textural appeal.
Few things make me happier than witnessing Leflaive firing on all cylinders. The 2019 Clavoillon is certainly such a moment. At this sharp price, it's not to be missed.

"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."
