March 14, 2017 - Pale yellow. Aromatics of lime, peach, white flowers and a hint of matchstick soar from the glass. Medium-bodied in the mouth, with lots of lemons, lime and powdered stone that lead to a very long, minerally finish that seems to linger forever. This is painfully young, but oh so promising. A textbook white Burgundy that is on the upswing. 95.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 16, 2017 - pnp from 375ml, first of these that gave me pause. Not oxidized at all but more advanced than others I've had. More yellow fruit, less minerality. Still with the flint finish so while very good, not as exciting as I've recently had.

January 14, 2017 - Ex domaine from 375ml. Deep yellow gold. This was a rather mainstream wine, either in a closed phase or just not made that well. Muted on the nose, with just the faintest aromas of Chinese pear, lime, minerals, stone and wet grass. Very linear and thin on the palate, one dimensional, fruits were almost non existent. Considering the number of positive reviews this wine has had, I probably caught this on the wrong day.

December 3, 2016 - Lys strågul. Ren og delikat duft med gule frukttoner og pent integrert fat og det typiske puligny-preget med antydning til flint og kruttrøyk. Fyldig i anslaget, rene toner med innslag av gule plommer og sitrus, godt integrert fat og ren, ganske intens syre. Bredere i fruktbildet enn Leflaive Pucelles 09 som vi hadde ved siden av.

August 3, 2016 - Lemony, zesty , creamy , buttery and all things nice. Muted on the nose with some citrus and lemony notes the palate really brings this up to the levels you expect from Montrachet. A nice minerally yet lemony fruit driven core balanced by adequate acidity that helps cut the rich buttery feel to just the right level - and a finish that is pleasingly long - ah to have something like this more often - very satisfying !1 person found this helpful Comment
