Domaine Leflaive, Puligny Montrachet 2001

The Puligny-Montrachet 2001 from Domaine Leflaive is stil fresh and crisp. In the nose fine yellow fruit, almonds, slight hint of citrus and a nice Puligny minerality – classic Leflaive. On the palate fine balance with a quite intense fruit and a crisp and fresh acidity. Very harmanious for the vintage … almost without the slightly rustic and rough character of the vintage. A lovely effort … matured … but will keep – this is how a village Puligny should be.
