Friday 5th February

2005 Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru, Clavoillon, Domaine Leflaive, Burgundy, France

£30 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £198.50


This week, I wanted to pay tribute to one of the most involved and talented producers in Burgundy: Anne Claude Leflaive. I've also chosen one of the exceptional vintages 2005, which is drinking really well now.

Domaine Leflaive was established in 1717 and is nowadays regarded as one of the finest Burgundy estates. Mainly producing wines from Puligny-Montrachet, I choose to show today a Puligny Premier Cru from a 11.84 acres vineyard called Clavoillon. The wine had a barrel age of 12 months and a following six months in stainless steel.

With a creamy texture, the wine develops notes of hazelnuts and roasted almonds as well as some baked apple and stone fruit tones on the nose. The rich palate is balanced by a chalky minerality giving to the wine a great freshness. It is a great pairing for our cod course.
