Under a hectare in size within the finest location of Le Cailleret, this is a beautifully poised wine. The initial flamboyance of ripe tropical fruits gives way to soft nutty flavours and the gentle levels of acidity uplift the palate. A wine of real intensity.
Interestingly here there is almost no nose as the aromas are restrained to the point of being almost mute though what can be coaxed from the glass suggests that this will be quite floral when it grows up. There is by contrast outstanding intensity and punch to the mineral-driven and broad-shouldered flavors that possess a notably clean and cool mouth feel before culminating in a refreshing, bone dry and extract-rich finish. This is very, very primary today but exceptionally promising. Outstanding. Drink 2019+
Good lift and raciness. Chalky palate. Lovely texture and balance. Great tension. Well done! Might even be worth the money... Drink 2014-2020
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.
