Notes from the Winemaker:

Vinification:
Long, gentle pneumatic pressing, “débourbage,” or “settling of the juice,” over 24 hours; then racking and running the must into cask. Alcoholic fermentation in oak casks, 22% new (maximum 1/2 Vosges, minimum 1/2 allier). Matured 12 months in cask, then aged 6 months in tank, where it is prepared for bottling. Homeopathic fining and very light filtering at bottling, if necessary.

Biodynamic.
Manual harvesting with grape sorting and optimisation of choice of date through parcel-by-parcel ripeness monitoring.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Decanter:
"Domaine Leflaive was among the earlier pickers in Puligny in 2017 and it shows in the tautness and balance of wines like this one. Tight and chiselled, with well-integrated 20% new wood, this is all citrus fruit and lemongrass with a racy, tapering finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029" - (27 Oct 2018)

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon is excellent, and a clear step up over the Puligny Village, something that can't be taken for granted. Offering up aromas of lemon, beeswax, white flowers and blanched almonds, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and nicely concentrated, with tangy acids, chewy extract and a long, precise finish. It's promisingly tight-knit and should develop further before it's bottled." - William Kelley (4th Jan 2019)

90-92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(the 2017 premier crus are aging in about 20% new oak): Aromas of peach, vanilla and spicy oak are lifted by stony energy. Precise and clean, showing lovely density without any impression of weight. A strong peach flavor is accented by a touch of minerality on the subtly long back end." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2018)
