By John Gilman View From the Cellar (Puligny-Montrachet “Pucelles”- Domaine Leflaive) Surprisingly, the 2010 Pucelles chez Leflaive has slightly broader shoulders than the Combettes this year, but the wine also possesses all of the elegance and transparency found in the greatest wines of the vintage. The nose is a superb blend of apple, white peach, spring flowers, great, chalky minerality and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with great mid-palate depth, a very primary personality, racy acids and superb length and grip on the flawless finish. Another simply beautiful wine in the making. (Drink between 2020-2060) 95 points

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  Burghound 94
