"An attractively layered nose combines lovely floral notes with those of citrus peel, pear and soft spice hints. The racy and tension-filled medium weight flavors possess excellent detail on the palate coating finish that is at once clean, dry and, minerally and youthfully austere. I would further observe that this is a wine that has made considerable progress over the last 10 years, and the 2018 is only the latest confirmation of that progress. In short, this is really quite promising." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 79

"Aromas of fresh peach, white flowers, citrus oil and green apples preface the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny wine that's racy and fine-boned, with lively acids, a delicate core of fruit and a chalky finish. This has none of the blockiness of yesteryear's Clavoillon." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon 1er Cru, Leflaive’s largest vineyard at 4.8 hectares, has a very perfumed bouquet with mirabelle, crushed pebble and a touch of sherbet blossoming from the nose. The well-balanced palate offers a touch of spice on the entry, good acidity, moderate depth and a suggestion of ginger toward the sappy finish." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Oak spice is more evident here on the nose. Deep and really marked by oak spice, rich and spicy but not heavy. A touch of struck match. Very mineral. Intense and spiced on the finish with citrus core and mouth-watering finish" Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
