Ratings & Reviews
"Pale lemon and lime. Some grace to the bouquet though the detail is still to follow. The bouquet suggests just the right oaking. I can find a little fresh orange blossom, though predominantly white fruit, excellent grip behind and impeccable length. A Puligny with backbone, for sure." (May 2022)
"This is also sufficiently reduced to completely overshadow the underlying fruit. On the palate there is terrific, indeed almost painful, intensity to the medium weight flavors that flash the innate refinement of a fine Puligny before culminating in a very clean, sleek, bone-dry and chiseled finale. This is presently very tightly wound and a wine that definitely will need at least some patience. Excellent and this is a step up from its usual quality." (Jun 2022)
