A producer I’m not familiar with. Les Combettes combines the intensity of Puligny with the generosity of the Meursault Charmes, which it borders.

I slow ox’ed this for an hour or so before enjoying half the bottle, then re-corked the second half for the next day. Definitely no pre-mox here, thankfully. Day one sported a mellow profile…medium bodied with honeysuckle, lemon oil dripped over limestone, and a high acid quick finish. Day two showed really nice improvement…channeled a bit of a Mersault flair with its richer/more rounded texture showing lemon-honey and sea salt popcorn. I’d hold this 3-5 more years.

Wow, what a luscious but restrained wine - haven't had a great Burgundy in a while, and now I've been reminded of what I'm missing. The perfect thing to start our anniversary off on the right foot, with great friends..
