Zachys Must Buy Tip From The 97-Point Vintage, The Highest-Rated In 44 Years - 2014 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet Le Clavoillon 1er Cru (93De/92JG/93.5CT/90-93BH). The Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet Neighbor Excels Plus The Final Allocation From the “Epic” Vintage and “The World’s Most Profound White Wine Producer.”

“The elegance of 2014 has given the Clavoillon here wings on which to soar!” John Gilman

“Anne-Claude Leflaive set standards for white Burgundy that few other estates can approach...No one should pass up a chance to purchase villages Puligny.” – Robert Parker

As you may already know, 2014 is regarded as one of the great white Burgundy vintages; it was recently rated 97 points by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, making it the highest-rated in more than 44 years of reviews. But that is not the only reason to buy 2014, with the small yields looming from 2015, 2016 and even 2017, the best insider tip we can provide is, as Allen Meadows of Burghound so appropriately stated, “you should buy the 2014s and secondly, I would suggest not only buying but buying aggressively.” And for Zachys that begins with the wines from the icon of whites, Domaine Leflaive, and the pure, biodynamic winemaking touch of Anne-Claude. It is fitting that 2014, which turned out to be Anne-Claude’s final vintage, sits comfortably among the Domaine’s very best vintages. Even further, there is no denying that this domaine belongs beside the likes of Lafon, Roulot and Coche-Dury. And what Zachys appreciates is that in many of the whites from the historic 400-year-old estate, there is relative value to be found.

More specifically, there is one release that was on a meteoric rise that arguably reaches its pinnacle expression in 2014 and that is the crowd-pleasing Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet Le Clavoillon 1er Cru (93De/93.5CT/90-93BH). The wine has a dedicated following as it offers approachability with longevity with its generous fruit and balancing minerality; this near monopole, with its old vines dating back to 1959, is one of the more appealing wines from Puligny-Montrachet these days. For us, the wine lands somewhere between Les Pucelles and Combettes, showcasing elements of both. Like its prestigious Les Pucelles neighbor, there is a ripeness to it that is akin to Bâtard-Montrachet, but there is also energy and verve. The Grand Cru neighbor here delivers; where Bâtard-Montrachet commands $650, and the more prestigious 1er Cru Les Pucelles commands $315, this a best kept secret at $152! If you want to fall in love with collectible white Burgundy, it begins here. Here are the 2014s at some of the best pricing in the country, including Les Pucelles which many think challenges the Grand Crus in the hands of Leflaive.

Special pricing is valid through January 23rd at 11:59pm EST or while wines remain available.

All my best,
Andrew

17+/20 Points, Richard Hemming, Jancis Robinson: `Tight knit, very linear and bony kind of style. Not at all luscious or broad: all focused and tangy. Good, but doesn’t seem to have the wow factor of the best grand crus.` 1/13 more >
