*Outstanding, Top Value* Some unabsorbed post-bottling sulfur still lingers and it's enough to dominate the nose at present though not so much that I believe there will be any lingering problem. Otherwise the middle weight flavors possess the hallmark elegance and refinement of a classic Puligny as the mouth feel is impressive, all wrapped in a complex, balanced and lightly mineral-inflected finale. This is a terrific Puligny villages and highly recommended.
The 2014 Puligny Montrachet has a little more vivacity and precision than the Meursault, perhaps more mineralité too. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry with good weight, tons of freshly sliced lime and kiwi fruit here with a bravura of a finish. Not a complex Puligny, but it compensates with its joie-de-vivre. (NM)
11 months in oak. Smells more complex than the Meursault. A little cedary. Generous creamy texture with notable depth of fruit. Beautifully balanced between green/citrus fruits and that smooth, satisfying texture. (JH)
Bright pale yellow. Ripe peach and a bouquet of flowers on the nose. Boasts a silky mouthfeel, but the flavors of modestly ripe orchard fruits and pungent rocky minerality are still quite young. Firm acidity enhances the wine's minerality but this village wine will be better for a year or two of patience. The tactile finish shows sneaky length. (ST)
