An openly exotic and exuberant nose of peach, apricot and a hint of mango trimmed in a touch of wood toast complements fresh, bright and sweet flavors that possess good size and weight and while this certainly possesses an attractive texture, it lacks the same fine depth, punch and finishing detail on the relatively dry finish.

Sleek and zesty with quite a bit of concentration. Particularly impressive! This has a great finish with menthol freshness and great comfort and richness. Drink 2010-2020
Ripe aromas of peach, nut oil, marzipan and spices, plus a suggestion of exotic fruits. Fat and sweet, with very ripe stone fruit and spice flavors dominating. The faintly exotic character follows through on the palate.
Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
