Tasting Notes

This is very refreshing and persistent with chalky citrus aromas and lovely length on the palate. Pithy citrus flavours mingle with grapefruits, lemons and a spicy mineral quality. This will age well for five or more years but will also be delicious soon after release. Drink from 2015.

Reviews & Scores

The 2012 Puligny-Montrachet Village comes from a parcel within the lieu-dit "La Rue aux Vaches" that was planted in 1957. It offers a lively, dewy, green apple bouquet with a touch of flint. The palate is well endowed for a village cru with plenty of ripe hazelnut-tinged citric fruit, a fine line of acidity and good presence on the long, satisfying finish. Excellent.

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.
