Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Decanter:
"Leflaive's village Puligny is back as a reference point for the village under new cellarmaster, Pierre Vincent. Aged in 15% new wood, this comes from five different parcels and is tangy, focussed and appealingly stony, with good freshness and palate length. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025" - (27 Oct 2018)

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Village wafts from the glass with notes of lemon rind, pastry cream, white flowers and a light framing of smoky reduction. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and vibrant, with tangy acids, lovely purity and an elegant, precise profile. I suspect it will further gain in depth and dimension with additional élevage." - William Kelley (4th Jan 2019)

89-91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Restrained nose offers a spicy nuance. Youthfully withdrawn on the palate as well, but with lovely clarity and penetration and noteworthy purity of stone fruit and spice flavors. Intensely flavored, balanced and long, this village wine is still a baby. The crop level here was no more than 35 hectoliters per hectare, according to Pierre Vincent." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2018)
