An infamous Puligny 1er cru with only 3 owners; Domaine Leflaive, his brother; Jean-Louis Chavy and himself. The vineyard is located in prime real estate below Les Folatieres and between Les Pucelles and Les Perrieres. Planted in 1953, this is Alain’s oldest vineyard. The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillons 1er Cru comes from 0.50 hectares of 60-year-old vines and sees around 35% new oak. It has a little more detail and stoniness on the nose compared directly with the Champ Gains. The palate is very well balanced, with orange pith, lime, a pinch of white pepper and flinty notes toward the sustained finish. It might need a little more depth considering the climat in question, although it does reveal a very pleasant fiery quality on the aftertaste. 90-92 Points Neal Martin, vinous.com
