Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes
“An intense version, yet reticent, hesitating to fully unlock the floral, apple, lemon and mineral aromas and flavors today. Builds in intensity to a long, pure finish of lemon, stone and spice.”
"... offering scents of subtle saline minerality, menthol and almond paste. Fat, rich and fine-grained on the palate, with ripe peach and pineapple fruit flavors conveying an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity. The firm, rising finish shows terrific pineappley cut and a tannic touch."
"A whiff of reduction isn’t sufficient to mask the pretty essence of pear and apple aromas that enjoy floral and citrus top notes. The beautifully textured, concentrated and sappy medium weight plus flavors are both sleek and delineated, all wrapped in a classy and impeccably well-balanced finish that flashes more minerality than is usual for Combettes."
