Puligny Montrachet, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2013

A really big and tropical nose. Loads of zesty and punchy citrus with hints of pineapple and passion fruit. Explosive mid palate of dense and tense fruit with great acidity. Very big and action-packed for a 2013. A long way ahead and a lot of fun — 14 hours ago

Love ES, can be difficult to source the 1er Cru stuff, it's narrowly distributed.

Domaine Benoit Ente

Nexe Flore Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

A wine that will never be produced again according to BH as 43% of their 1er cru Truffiere was accidentally blended in with their village wine producing 4000 btls. This was rich showing citrus, stone fruits, mineral with good acidity. — 6 days ago

Took 5 hours to open. Now, hazelnut, iodine, light wood, minerals and flowers. Palate is rich and ripe with insane acidity and purity. Deep, rich and clean. Lovely pear and apple fruit and awesome almost crunchy texture. So pure. Clean as a whistle. — 7 days ago

Château Génot-Boulanger

Les Folatières Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Bright and delicious. Light lemon, a hit of matchstick. A noticeable fruitiness to the midpalate with good balancing acidity.. Polished and soft at the edges but lots of life and a tingling sweetness. — 11 days ago

The nose reveals; lemon, lime, green apple, overripe pineapple, some some fruit, silvered almonds, honeysuckle notes, beeswax, wet river-stones, chamomile, orange peel, slight waft if dark caramel, soft vanillin, sea spray, light saline, warm toast, wet, soft chalkiness, touch of candied ginger, perfumed, spring flowers and fragrant yellow lilies.

The body is; thick, round, slightly waxy & voluptuous. 2010 is an excellent vintage and time in bottle has served it well. Striving to its peak, there is nice integration with honey qualities. Excellent texture/mouthfeel. Lemon, lime, green & golden apple, overripe pineapple, some some fruit, silvered almonds, honeysuckle notes, beeswax, wet river-stones, chamomile, butterscotch, orange peel, slight waft of dark caramel, soft vanillin, sea spray, light saline, warm toast, wet, soft chalkiness, limestone minerals, gritty, pungent, grey volcanics touch of candied ginger, touch of white spice, perfumed, spring flowers and fragrant yellow lilies. The acidity is round & phat. Like Goldilocks & her last porridge, it’s just right. The long; beautiful, voluptuous, sexy & well balanced finish is delicious and lingers on the palate minutes.

Playing very well into our Jasper Hill Farms Willoughby soft white cheese with champagne washed rind.

Photos of; our cold, morning April walk in their Puligny-Montrachet Vineyard, our tour through their cellars with Olivier Leflaive and our multi-course lunch paired with six of their wines...finishing with their Bastard.
