(92-93 points) This is a real Puligny with lemons and cooked apples. Hints of straw and limestone. Full- to medium-bodied, layered and clean. Bright finish. A beauty. Savory and salt at the end. Drink now.

On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and zesty, with a fine core, very good cut and grip and a long, nascently complex and energetic finish. Good juice.

Wine Spectator, May 2019
Apple, lemon cake and honey flavors mark this ripe yet tightly wound style, which is balanced and full of energy, finishing with a mix of fruit, stone and spice notes. Drink now through 2024. — B.S.

This is very nice, and is certainly one of the best examples of this appellation in 2016. Notes of citrus zest, spring flowers and white peach precede a glossy, cool and elegant palate, with succulent acids, good concentration and a taut finish for the vintage.

Tasted from bottle, Leflaive's 2016 Puligny-Montrachet Village is showing well, wafting from the glass with a fragrant bouquet of pink grapefruit, white peach and spring flowers, complemented by a delicate touch of citrus blossom on the upper register. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a glossy attack, good depth and concentration and a bright but open-knit, charming core, concluding with an elegantly saline finish. The wine's aromatic exotica mark it out as a product of its vintage, but it's a classy Puligny Village from this important domaine. - William Kelley
