0.5 hectares planted in 1955. An infamous vineyard as it is one of the most accessible vineyards offered by Domaine Leflaive (who own the lion's share). Alain and his brother Jean-Louis own the rest. It sits below the steep vineyard of Les Folatieres, in between Les Perrieres and Les Pucelles. The resulting wines have a smokiness which needs to dissipate with time in bottle to then reveal more fruit and minerality.

Higher toned, markedly more mineral, pure and crystalline. Lovely dried florals lift from the glass. So energetic, high toned, mineral, pure, crystalline and long. Such a special sensation. Very, very good. - Jono Hersey, FWC

The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Clavoillons 1er Cru is quite backward on the nose, yet opens to reveal attractive lime, citrus peel and crushed rock aromas, a touch of sea spray in the background. The palate is well balanced with a tang of orange zest on the entry, plenty of energy here with a charming, cohesive finish that conveys the precocity of the vintage without erasing the DNA of the terroir. The spicy aftertaste is an added bonus. 91-93 Points - Neal Martin, Vinous.com
