2002 Leflaive, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Les Combettes
With my first sip, I wasn’t sure what to make of this wine – it seemed so dry – but by the third sip all was okay (something I ate?) The nose is really less about chardonnay, and perhaps less about Puligny, than about Leflaive; gunflint and savoury is the impression. In the mouth this is decently concentrated and shows a nice mid-palate intensity. The acidity is fine too. My overall impression is of a lithe, sinewy wine with truly excellent detail. I still think it is more ‘Leflaive’ than Puligny – at least aromatically – but no harm done; a wine in perfect condition that is also drinking perfectly…
Rebuy – Yes
