Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, Les Pucelles--Vintage 1992
Domaine-bottled: Domaine Leflaive
Lot 337 slightly bin-soiled labels
In original cartons
Tasting note: The Domaine Leflaive has enjoyed many successful vintages over the years - 1979, 1985, 1986, and 1989 come to mind immediately - but the 1992s are the finest young wines this domaine has produced. Yields averaged 45 hectoliters per hectare, far below most recent vintages. The wines are renowned for their purity and elegance, but the 1992s also display a special level of richness and intensity. In terms of marrying power with finesse, the Puligny-Montrachet-Les Pucelles is a classic. The 1992 is richer and more unctuous than usual. It possesses fabulous clarity and definition, a great bouquet of oranges/tangerines combined with toasty vanillin, buttered popcorn, and apple scents. Sensationally concentrated, with layers of flavor beautifully buttressed by vibrant acidity, this is a magnificent wine. Robert Parker. Wine Advocate 89, Ocotber 1993.
