Leflaive’s 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres represents a major step up in concentration over the wines that proceeded it in this year’s line-up. Ripe, faintly caramelized peach, quince preserves, citrus zest, and brown spices dominate the nose and succulent, creamily-textured palate. Musky notes of narcissus and heady lily-like perfume add allure and complexity, following all the way through the finish. At the same time, this is anything but heavy, evincing a sense of buoyancy that beautifully compliments the wafting floral character of its long finish. This refined Puligny sublimates any overt mineral character in the interest of seduction, of which it should remain fully capable for at least the next 6-8 years.
