Puligny Montrachet, Côte De Beaune

Jean-Jacques Morel

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2014

Wow. Utterly magnificent for village puligny. Genius wine. Worth $100 easy. When morel hits it he hits it. Nose is so elegant. Fresh rainwater. Yellow flowers. Beautiful. The palate is sweet mineral goodness. Like a sweet rock was pulverized in your mouth. Long finish. A wine of beauty and distinction. Too bad French over regulation caused him to throw in the towel.

As this aerates the nose is beautiful. The palate is richer. But in such an elegant way.

This needs an hour to peak. Wow. This is gorgeous. Grand cru gorgeous. Wow. Hand over land. Lol. The ultimate king slayer to bring to a burgundy tasting.

Bought from fass selections.

Domaine Leflaive

Les Combettes Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Developed. Very poised and balanced. Clear and quite tangy, notes of orange and almost aged semi loon- like stuff. Interesting and still fresh. Good. — 13 days ago

Light gold and nice weight in the glass. Awesome leesy and fruit forward nose. Notes of citrus, river stone, tan spice, apricot and some whit flowers. Intense and impactful in the mouth. Luscious flavors balanced with fine grained acidity. Great showing. — 19 days ago

Domaine Michel Niellon

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1986

Tasted blind. Straw gold color. Looks young but the complex nose says it isn’t. Notes of citrus, apricot, gravel, some mint. Has that dirty nose that I connect Niellon to. Stunning power, structure and acidity in the mouth. I’m told this was open for 6 hrs already. Some conversation leads to Batard as the vineyard. Someone guesses Ramonet but I go with 86 Niellon Batard. Bam. An all time fav white for me, this was one of the best showings for it. — 13 days ago

Etienne Sauzet

Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1999

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Oxidative nose. Notes of citrus and baked apples, with a little caramel. Rich in the mouth. Modest fruit, light acidity. You can tell this has the stuffing of a great Montrachet, but clearly this bottle had more age than it should. I guessed “a poorly stored 92 Leflaive”. The 86 Niellon next to it looked 13 yrs younger rather than its 13 yrs older. Sadly the pox got this one. — 13 days ago

Domaine Latour-Giraud

Champs Canet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Heady rich and complex aromatics: cinema buttered popcorn, orange citrus oil, ripe mushroom, sweet baking spices. Rich tongue coating palate has all that plus warmed buttered and spiced nuts, sweet orange rind, candied lemon slice, lemon pie, fresh dill, ripe white nectarine, nectarine stone, wet river stone. Thankful to see a touch of green in the honeyed golden hues, because the ripe developed notes and lack of Puligny acid precision hinted at premox initially. Perhaps not a long life ahead instead, but beautiful now. — a day ago
