Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Expressive and classy, this white exhibits floral, vanilla, peach, apple, lemon and honey flavors. Firm and elegant, with precision and fine mineral length. Drink now through 2028. 2,715 cases made, 543 cases imported." - BS (Apr 2024)

90-93 Points - Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"An elegant, pure and more floral nose offers up its combination of green apple, prominent citrus and crushed fennel nuances. There is borderline painful intensity to the appealingly textured medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality, chiseled, balanced and long finish that is quite dry but not really austere. This is an excellent Puligny villages that is also worth strong consideration." (Jun 2023)

90-92 Points - Jasper Morris' Inside Burgundy:
"A pale color with a slight green tint. The nose is more complex than the Bourgogne without suggesting much greater power. Here it is the elegance which counts, fresh white fruit with fines herbes. More lemon than lime in its citrus notes. Medium plus length. Drink from 2025-2028." (Apr 2023)

90+ Points - Wine Advocate:
"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." – William Kelley (Jan 2024)
