2017 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon

Posted by Ian McFadden

Leflaive's 2017s are more than worthy successors to their amazing 2014s.

For many years, Leflaive has resided at the very highest level of white Burgundy. Right there with Coche-Dury, Lafon, Roulot, and Ramonet.

The 2017s show Leflaive at the top of their game. The wines are utterly classic, showing loads of finesse, verve, and depth.

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 2017 Clavoillon is one of those vintages. It's a vintage of extreme balance and textural appeal. The Clavoillon has a stunning brilliance in its delivery of minerality and citrus flavors.

Few things make me happier than witnessing Leflaive firing on all cylinders. The 2017 Clavoillon is certainly such a moment. At this sharp price, it's not be missed.

Burghound: "An overtly citrus-infused nose offers up notes of relatively elegant green apple, lavender and soft jasmine tea wisps. There is notably better subtly to the agreeable textured flavors that are notably finer than they usually are, all wrapped in a sappy, delicious, complex and focused finale. This could be approached young but should also merit up to a decade in a cool cellar."
