Puligny Montrachet Clavoillon 2015 Domaine Leflaive
Of all the domaine's wines, Leflaive's 2015 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon is arguably the cuvée that has benefited the most from biodynamic viticulture, as what was formerly a rather foursquare, blocky premier cru in the 1990s is now routinely more dynamic and lively. The 2015 opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of fresh pear, citrus zest, orange blossom and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is bright, energetic and pure with good depth and a tangy, penetrating finish. While the race is close today, the Clavoillon is holding more in reserve than the domaine's excellent Puligny Village, and its acids are brighter, so this will reward a bit of patience.
