Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes Domaine Leflaive

Vinous
Outer quote mark The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru suffered more millerandage than others this year. In fact, Brice de la Morandière confessed that the vines are constantly being threatened with being grubbed up and they will review the situation every three years. This has a taut nose, very well defined, and more reserved and stonier than the Clavoillon, with alpine streams and dewy pasture scents unfurling in the glass. The well-balanced plate displays a saline tang on the entry, just a touch of orange peel and quite a spicy, persistent finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
Outer quote mark Here the nose is sufficiently reduced to render an assessment impossible. Otherwise, the succulent yet punchy medium weight flavors possess an opulent mouthfeel while delivering outstanding length on the beautifully well-balanced finish that maintains its focus as it sits on the palate. This refined and very classy if presently restrained effort is textbook Combettes. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes is showing well, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, orange oil, blanched almonds, nutmeg and fresh mint. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, textural and muscular, with fine concentration and chalky structure. Pierre Vincent and de La Morandière observe that this site, naturally precocious, is generally harvested a little later, as the vines are suffering from leaf roll virus.
