"The 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé En Vigneraie possesses lovely earthy and mineral tones that play off the natural radiance of the fruit in 2018. Apricot, orange confit and tropical overtones all build with a bit of time in the glass. The Vigneraie is a bit introspective and serious in demeanor, but also has a lot to offer."
(Antonio Galloni, vinous.com)
"In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, no winegrower from Puligny made wine. All the grapes were sold to négociants, in Meursault or in Beaune.
Today, things have greatly changed, especially with the advent of air-conditioning and new insulation materials, which have made it possible to vinify in cellars above ground, located on the ground floor of the houses in the village.
The facilities of the Domaine were modernised regularly, especially in the 70s and early 80s with extensions added to the cellar where the vinifications are carried out. After 40 years of use, the premises became cramped and required updating and improvement.
Our wish was to make the most of current knowledge concerning natural insulation materials to reduce dependence on air conditioning. As a result the attics and walls were reinforced with forty centimetres of insulating material and all the walls were renovated and repointed. In order to maintain a constant humidity, the floors were dug down and some walls were rebuilt in brick in order to distribute the absorbed moisture gradually.
The cellars of Domaine Leflaive are now more self-sufficient and they are insulated with the best materials which allow vinification to once again take place in a tranquil environment."
