A distinctly spicy nose also offers up notes of honeysuckle, citrus and white-fleshed orchard fruit aromas. There is a really lovely and refined texture to the silky medium weight flavors that are really quite delicious but lack just a bit of the verve displayed by the Folatières and not quite the same fine depth either. Still, this is very good and very Pucelles in character. Drink 2016+
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.
