  • Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes – 2017 – Wine Spectator – 94 Points

    Tangy and full of floral, creamy peach and hazelnut flavors, shaded by vanilla and toasty oak notes. Racy and mouthwatering on the bracing finish, with alluring aromas and subtle length. Drink now through 2028. 600 cases made, 85 cases imported.
