"I'm inclined to nominate the 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes as Leflaive's finest premier cru this year." -William Kelley
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.
When William Kelley writes that Combettes is the wine of Leflaive's 2019 collection, he's placing it at the pinnacle of white Burgundy.
Combettes is defined by its intense minerality. Leflaive's 2019 Combettes boasts a wonderful nervy and chiseled finesse. There's a soaring aristocratic complexity to the wine that's crystal clear.
For many years, Leflaive has resided at the very highest level of white Burgundy. It's right there with Coche-Dury, Lafon, Roulot, and Ramonet. Few things make me happier than witnessing Leflaive firing on all cylinders. The 2019 Combettes is a profound example of this.

William Kelley, The Wine Advocate: "I'm inclined to nominate the 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes as Leflaive's finest premier cru this year. Wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, citrus oil, fresh peach, toasted nuts and smoke, it's full-bodied, rich and satiny, with an immensely concentrated and incisive profile. Taut and chiseled despite its mid-palate plenitude, it's built to cellar."
