Domaine Leflaive, Puligny-Montrachet Le Clavoillon 1er Cru 2005

Imported by Wilson Daniels, St. Helena CA.

Yellow-gold.  Just a whiff of Leflaive reduction and the wine runs the whole wonderous dialectic.  On entry the wine is balanced on the razor’s edge: titanium, white hyacinth, burning cuttings.   On the palate the mass and solidity is striking, a sweet-salted wall of ripe fruit bliss.  She has cat-claws AND soft fur and the finish is glory-bound.   Sizzling for ’05 blanc.  Now – 2020+.
