"Leflaive's 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres represents a major step up in concentration over the wines that proceeded it in this year's line-up. Ripe, faintly caramelized peach, quince preserves, citrus zest, and brown spices dominate the nose and succulent, creamily-textured palate. Musky notes of narcissus and heady lily-like perfume add allure and complexity, following all the way through the finish. At the same time, this is anything but heavy, evincing a sense of buoyancy that beautifully compliments the wafting floral character of its long finish. This refined Puligny sublimates any overt mineral character in the interest of seduction, of which it should remain fully capable for at least the next 6-8 years." erobertparker.com , Issue 186 Dec 2009, David Schildknecht

Honeysuckle, ripe white peach, and Persian melon mark the nose of Leflaive's 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes, which suggests the same sense of sweetness and heady inner-mouth perfume as the Les Folatieres, but with a pronounced set of what can only be called mineral flavors: salt, chalk, and crustacean-like savor, all of which set up a fine palate interplay with the wine's rich fruit. There is a sultry suggestion here, but pleasing, and not the actual hint of heat that was noticed in the Clavoillon. This too should be worth following for at least 6-8 years. erobertparker.com , Issue 186 Dec 2009, David Schildknecht

Very pale color with a green cast. Complex aromas of lime, white peach, white flowers and crushed stone. Then silky, sweet and penetrating, with nicely integrated acidity contributing structure and verve. A linear, firmly built wine that really vibrates on the persistent, aromatic finish. Remy describes this wine as “more solid and larger-scaled than the 2004 but with similar acidity and minerality.” Classy and classic Puligny.

Not an effusive aroma, with touches of citrus and the sea. On the palate, this is concentrated and seamless, with balance and harmony. Just needs time to show all its features. Offers fine length, with a chalky feel at the end. Best from 2012 through 2025.


Winemaker's Notes:

In contrast to the expressiveness of the Clavoillon, the nose of Puligny<br/>Montrachet, Les Folatières is restrained and backward with more primary<br/>notes of lemon peel and rose petal with spiced pear nuances that can also be<br/>found on the pure, racy, intense and strikingly detailed medium-bodied flavors<br/>brimming with an almost pungent minerality on the explosive, complex and<br/>driving finish. I really like the underlying sense of personality... <br/>(Allan Meadows - burghound.com - Jun 09)
