Beautiful wine. Peaking I think right now. Great minerality, touch of oak, nuanced oxidation.

La Truffière is one of the smallest vineyards of Burgundy’s Puligny-Montrachet appellation at around 7 acres. Its elevation ranges between just under 1000’ and up to almost 1100’, situating it well above most of Puligny’s best vineyards. Up until around 1950, the parcel was an abundant source for black truffles due to its limestone soils, which now makes it an excellent source for Chardonnay grapes. The power of suggestion is strong, but so is the notion of truffle in Bruno Colin’s 2011, along with a heavy dose of wet stone minerality, lemon verbena, white peach, and a racy finish that has its corners smoothed ever so slightly by oak treatment. Superb.

I just like saying 'La Truffiere'. Chiseled and taut.

Crisp, citrusy, saline. A little lacking in body.

Very pale for a 5 year old white burgundy. Restrained nose of minerals, grapefruit and a touch of Chablis-like Oyster shell. Just a beautifully made classic wine with everything in the right place. Perfect balance.
