Here too there is a trace of matchstick character on the slightly riper aromas that feature notes of apple compote, lavender and hints of the exotic and citrus elements. The rich, generously proportioned and fleshy medium weight flavors possess more size and weight than is usual for this wine thanks to the copious level of dry extract that confers a sappy texture to the moderately structured and notably dry finish in the context of the vintage. Outstanding  90-93 Burghound


The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon has a pretty nose in the make, touches of white flower and white peach filtering through the citrus fruit, superb mineralité tucked just underneath. The palate perhaps does not quite match the sophistication of the nose at the moment, although it is not far off. There is wonderful salinity and tension here, harmonious, not concentrated but so refined on the finish. Great terroir expression is already locked into this wine and though not a long-term proposition, it will give immense drinking pleasure. Wine Advocate 89-91


More open and expressive on the nose than the basic village wine, showing attractive floral lift. Rich but stylish on the palate, with yellow peach and spice flavors given shape by sound acidity. Tightens up on the back half, finishing with a slight tartness and a suggestion of licorice. Youthfully disjointed today but plenty ripe at 13.6% alcohol. These vines were harvested on August 31. -- Stephen Tanzer (89-91)
