  • Puligny-Montrachet — 2021 – Vinous – 89 Points

    "The 2021 Puligny-Montrachet Village, matured in 15% new oak, has a flint and forest floor-scented bouquet offering more vigor than the Bourgogne Blanc. The palate is fresh on the entry with a silver bead of acidity, green apple and a touch of bitter lemon, fanning out gently towards the more-ish finish.”

  • Puligny-Montrachet — 2021 – Wine Advocate – 90+ Points

    “The 2021 Puligny-Montrachet Village offers up aromas of pear, sweet citrus oil, toasted nuts and iodine, followed by a medium to full-bodied, tangy and chiseled palate that's taut, pure and saline, with a racy spine of acidity and a penetrating finish. This will reward a bit of bottle age.”
