Beautiful wine, elegant and transparent, showing the hints of PM's telltale power and richness. Chiseled minerality provides a wonderful frame for the elegant orchard fruits.

At first somewhat shy and unleashed, but with and hour in the decanter and some time in the glass the curtains fall and the shows begin. Ripe but taut fruit profile and well placed and balanced secondary aromas with a neat supporting oak profile is proving the good craftsmanship from a great wine maker.

Excellent. White fruits like fresh, tart and juicy apple, white florals, a lightly toasted oak and nut note. The palate is juicy and seamless, showing excellent verve and mineral core.

A young and awkward #whiteburgundy Medium intensity and complexity on the nose. The palate's structure was driven by high acid. The fruit was on the unripe side. There was a strong white pepper characteristic. The length was surprisingly long. Needs a couple years to balance out. #etiennesauzet #pulignymontrachet #burgundy #cotedebeaune #chardonnay #ctbucklinwine
