Puligny Pucelles, Domaine Leflaive 2016
The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles offers similar richness to the Folatières but with a hints of Meursault-like nuttiness developing in the glass, plus hazelnut and lychee. The palate is very well balanced with a harmonious texture, a fine bead of acidity, a little spicier than the Folatières though quintessentially Puligny-like on the strict, linear and quite saline finish. Very fine—there is plenty of personality here. 2019 - 2033

Rich with a hint of creaminess on the nose. So much there even though masses of acidity on the palate. Very youthful indeed. Still almost raw but one can so easily see that all building blocks are there. Wonderful peacock’s tail on the end. 2023 - 2035
