    Goedhuis, December 2019

    This cuvée is made from 12 parcels in the village, the majority from Les Meix just beside the superb 1er Cru Pucelles vineyard. A lovely floral style of wine with attractive notes of clementine and acacia honey. Graceful and pure with an exquisitely refined and delicate finish. Lovely.

    The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village comes from the 12 parcels located around the appellation. It offers attractive dewy green apples, freshly sliced pear and hints of mirabelle on the nose, which needs a few swirls of the glass to awaken. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and citrus lemon and hints of lime, all matched with a fine bead of acidity, the 15% new oak neatly folded into the finish. Recommended. 2022 - 2032

    A more floral-inflected nose reflects notes of pear and apple compote that is laced with soft spice and lemon zest hints. The medium weight flavors are not quite as concentrated but they're more finely textured while delivering very good length on the moderately firm finale. This too should add depth with 6 to 8 years of cellaring. Drink 2025+ Outstanding

    Clear pale lemon, with some very appealing light fruit on the nose. Beautifully balanced on the palate, this is textbook Puligny, with its little bit of steely backbone supporting the most enticing fruit. Very good persistence.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet

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.
