Great density on the palate seems to pull the aromas earthwards but there is a great weight here. Lots of substance.

“Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Leflaive’s 2014 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles, which was the first vintage not bottled under cork (Diam “”D”” to be exact), is quite closed on the bouquet with cold stone and sea cave aromas that blossom with time. The palate is well balanced with a very sappy entry, a fine line of acidity and a crisp, quite spicy and persistent finish. I just think this Caillerets is very backward at the moment and will have more to give once afforded 2-3 years in bottle. This is a scintillating Les Pucelles, and guess what…it’s not going to be corked!”
