Often considered one of the finest examples from this appellation, this Puligny-Montrachet is marked by its great depth and excellent mineral character. More info
It only takes a glance at the map of the village of Puligny-Montrachet to appreciate the size of the Les Pucelles terroir in Puligny-Montrachet, bordering on Bâtard-Montrachet. Domaine Leflaive operates 3 hectares on this premier cru with three plots: the "Clos du Meix", the "petite" and the "grande". It is a wine with perfect balance, presenting a beautiful richness but retaining an excellent acidity. The wine's mineral length is exceptional.
The name of the Domaine Leflaive will long remain associated with its famous ambassador Anne-Claude who, with the energy of the pioneers, converted the domaine to biodynamics between 1993 and 1997. The Leflaive family has lived in Puligny since 1717. But it was the genius of a marine engineer, a student of the Ecole Polytéchnique,which was needed to revive an area devastated by phylloxera. After participating in the design of the first French submarine, Joseph Leflaive returned to his native village, replanted and raised the profile of the domaine's wines well beyond the French borders. The third generation, Olivier and his cousin Anne-Claude, ensured that the domaine was at the heights of Burgundian hierarchy. Tasting the domaine's wines is a unique experience for any wine lover. The special attention paid to the vineyard and to the winemaking allows its particularly rich wines to reveal all the subtleties of the different Burgundian terroirs. Montrachet, Batârd, Chevalier, Bienvenues-Bâtard and the premier crus Folatières or Pucelles are wines with fundamentally different identities. These are rare cuvées, which every wine lover should taste at least once!
