Medium straw yellow color with emerald hints. Authoritative if a bit four-square on the nose: slightly savory white and yellow orchard fruit, honeysuckle, basil, cold butter, brioche and wet stone. A touch of oak. Nicely taut sinew to the palate, medium-full, turning more brothy and musky: green herb, Asian pear, white peach, yellow corn and unsweeted lemon ice. A linear equilibrium here from start to finish: this wine just cruises at the same wavelength from cork pop to last drop. Well detailed and nicely mineral. Good punch and zip. A cool, neat, wintery Clavoillon. A fine bottle. But the ’99 Leflaive Puligny Pucelles was far more rangy, nuanced and distinguished on this night (as it should be). Now – 2016.
