Domaine Leflaive, Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru 1992

Leflaive Combettes 2008

Imported by Wilson Daniels, St. Helena CA.

Twenty five years on.

Gold.  A stagnant river to start.  And then the wine starts to foam over rather than gush: buttery orange zest and marzipan and long hazelnut flavors.  Cake batter and palo cortado and the finish is at once genial and oceans deep.  Now.
