WS 93
Wine Spectator, October 2017
A fresh style, with a gossamer texture framing lemon, apple and white peach flavors. Accents of baking spices and mineral add depth as this unfolds to a long, intense aftertaste. Best from 2019 to 2025. — B.S.

(90-93 points) Here too there is a trace of matchstick character on the slightly riper aromas that feature notes of apple compote, lavender and hints of the exotic and citrus elements. The rich, generously proportioned and fleshy medium weight flavors possess more size and weight than is usual for this wine thanks to the copious level of dry extract that confers a sappy texture to the moderately structured and notably dry finish in the context of the vintage.

The 2015 Clavoillon was showing very nicely at the time of my visit, with plenty of elegance in evidence on both the nose and palate. The bouquet delivers a fine and quite floral constellation of lemon blossoms, apple, pear, chalky soil tones, a touch of fresh almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite open structurally, with a fine core, sound framing acids and good mineral drive on the long and still fairly primary finish. More complexity will emerge with further bottle age, but this wine is going to be difficult to keep one’s hands off of in its youth, if it does not firm up a bit more after bottling, as it is wide open and already delicious to drink today!

The 2015 opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of fresh pear, citrus zest, orange blossom and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is bright, energetic and pure with good depth and a tangy, penetrating finish. While the race is close today, the Clavoillon is holding more in reserve than the domaine's excellent Puligny Village, and its acids are brighter, so this will reward a bit of patience. - William Kelley

Bright yellow. Very ripe aromas of peach and pineapple accented by minerals. Fat and full but with lovely acid cut to the flavors of pineapple, stone fruits and grilled nuts; fresher than the Meursault but not quite as... Bright yellow. Very ripe aromas of peach and pineapple accented by minerals. Fat and full but with lovely acid cut to the flavors of pineapple, stone fruits and grilled nuts; fresher than the Meursault but not quite as brisk as it was from barrel a year earlier. Finishes with a suggestion of phenolic dryness and dusty tannins, especially compared to the 2016 version. - Stephen Tanzer
