"The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon has a lively nose with some lovely slate-like aromas drifting from the glass, followed by blackcurrant leaf and citrus lemon. The palate is well balanced with a light, slightly oily texture, moderate acidity, building in power toward the finish that never quite slips into fifth gear, at least not at this stage." (WA)

"Sexy if rather reticent aromas of peach and minerals suggest moderately ripe grapes. In a cooler style in the mouth, offering good breadth but not the clarity of the 2017 version. Finishes with good dusty persistence but I wanted a bit more verve." (VM)

"Enough reduction is present to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is a similar sense of energy to the slightly rounder and softer medium-bodied flavors that aren't quite as mineral-driven or complex but do offer fine persistence on the balanced finish. This should be approachable young if desired." (BH)
