It brings together the expressive bouquet and minerality of Combettes with some of the expressive fruit of the Folatieres. Vivid and multi-dimensional in the glass the Pucelles wraps around the palate with serious intensity. Citrus white flowers and green pears linger on the highly nuanced refined finish. Today though the 2010 is incredibly tight. Its pedigree is impossible to miss. Leflaive's Pucelles is easily one of the highlights of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015+ 95+

It is a great explosion of citrus, pear and green apple, the wood aging showing with subtlety. It’s a wine for aging, complex and tight at the end.

Densely packed and powerful but a bit perturbed in its current form with a recent SO2 addition accentuating the wine's acidity. Subtle notes of white pepper and wild herbs emerge with air to complicate the white peach and mineral flavors. Very juicy wine with superb depth and inner-mouth tension. Finishes with atypical energy for this cuvee and sneaky length.

An ultra-pure and highly complex nose of honeysuckle and essence of ripe pear liqueur introduces the silky and equally pure mineral-inflected middle weight flavors. There is a wonderfully clean and citrusy character to the driving, energetic and linear finish that despite the elevated sense of verve comes across as almost delicate. This should be fabulous in time as is one of the better vintages for this wine in a while. Outstanding ♥

Almost playful nose. Lifted. Really racy and energetic. Very ambitious. Bone-dry finish with real concentration in a mineral idiom. Straight backed. Lots of chew on the end. Long. 17.5/20
