Description

    Puligny Montrachet 2008
    Les Combettes, Domaine Leflaive
    Bottle (6)

    "Readers may remember that last year the '08 Combettes had not even started its malo at the time of my February visit (more than 16 months after the harvest!) and thus it was not rated. Well, I am very happy to report that it has turned out marvelously well with an ultra-fresh nose of mildly exotic yellow orchard fruit aromas trimmed in floral and wood components. There is excellent richness, size, weight and punch to the medium weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm acidity on the driving, even explosive finish that is stunningly long. This is quite simply an extraordinary wine and it is not an exaggeration to say that the '08 is the best young Leflaive Combettes that I have ever seen." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #43, Feb. 2011)
