sent with Tiffany to (another) girls dinner to celebrate her 50th, no feedback but i opened and tried and had good stuffing with acidic citrus profile, decanted and put back in bottle an hour later, interestingly it had softened and the oak was more apparent, not sure what this means vis a vis aging etc, won't try to interpret too much
Totally bonkers stunning: struck match, racy acid, steely minerality, tarte tatin style regal apples. Just as lovely as I recall from the Paulée. Will age my final bottle a bit further, but I'm not going to try the long haul, as I suspect I am a bit of a wine pedophile (drink 'em young).
Excellent for a village wine. Opened with a hint of matchstick. Revealed stone fruits, talc, minerals, citrus on the nose. The palate is more lemon/lime. Much more than the nose. Lovely profile and length.
A fantastic village. Though a bit reticent at first, with ample time in the decanter it developed a lovely bouquet of citrus, stone, mineral, and steel, and took on a beautiful depth and roundness with well-integrated oak and fat, ripe fruit. Three hours after decanting, the last glass was the best.
Les Domaines Familiaux de Bourgogne (Paris): A bit dull and weak right now, ondimensional, not sure what to come, at least the acid seemed lively and some assumed depth - or maybe it was the small sample(!) or my reservations towards Leflaive wines, don't know what to think
The best young village Leflaive Puligny in many years. It is tightly bound up by sulphur and rapier like acidity for now but has terrific underlying material. There are some white flower notes along with citrus, minerals and peach. It is focussed, detailed and linear with great poise, balance and length.
