Tasting Notes:

96 points Wine Enthusiast

A powerful wine, showing rich, opulent Chardonnay. The spice and acidity crispen the wine, but leave the powerful fruit in all its glory. (RV)  (7/2010)

The 2007 Pucelles is even better, and must clearly be one of the most profound premier crus to be found in this great white Burgundy vintage. The stunning bouquet offers up a very complex and beautiful mélange of apple, pear, lemon zest, beautifully complex limestone soil tones, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and hauntingly transparent, with a rock solid core of pure fruit, brilliant elegance, great intensity of flavor and a very, very long, very racy and profoundly focused finish. Great wine.  (1/2009)

A mild hint of exotic fruit combines with honeysuckle and a slight oak influence before giving way to rich, full and notably generous medium plus weight flavors that possess outstanding mid-palate fat and extract, which serve to buffer the firm acid spine on the wonderfully fine and lingering finish. A lacy, long and stylish wine of finesse rather than power and 2007 is undoubtedly one of the better vintages for the Leflaive Pucelles. *Outstanding* Drink: 2017+  (6/2010)

The Leflaive 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles offers minerality, finesse, and lift that leave behind its premier cru siblings. Seductive lily, heliotrope and iris along with high-toned herbal and pit fruit essences on the nose find their counterpart in wafting, bitter-sweet perfume and pure essence of peach and quince on a silken palate. There is a Chevalier-like sense of salt and stone shimmering through curtains of fruit in the finish. But the appropriateness of diaphanous metaphors here should not mislead one into suspecting a lack of concentration. In the end, this is implacably persistence, encompassing a tactile dimension to its sense of chalkiness. Hints of honey and toasted almond well up as this takes on air, suggesting an additional dimension of future richness. (DS)  (12/2009)
