A generous and straightforward wine, with a defined nose of blueberry, cherry and loganberry fruit, accented by soft vanilla oak. The palate is more robust, with the lush fruit framed by firm tannins.
With an explosive nose of pencil lead, crushed blueberry and black cherry, it has an opaque purple colour, glorious thick texture and fantastic balance for such a big wine.
A perfumed nose of blackcurrants, spice, black pepper and red fruits. Restrained yet powerful on the palate, well rounded with warming fruit and spice, integrated tannins and a long finish.
A superbly balanced wine between youthful fruit and warm, oaky complexity where the nose and palate are replete with notes of cinnamon and clove amid the the dense bramble fruit. Perfect with lamb.
"Very deep garnet-purple colored, notes of warm blackberries and blueberries with nuances of menthol, some spice cake, anise and bacon fat". 91 points. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate.
From a small parcel within Puligny's Premier Cru vines, situated on the gently sloping east-facing slopes of this classic vineyard.
Neither overtly fruity nor over-oaked, Jean-Louis Chavy's wines are extremely well balanced, emphasising the classic minerality of Puligny-Montrachet.
