Ripe and extremely opulent intense citrus fruit and white flowers coupled with medium weight flavors dripping with minerality and enough fat to buffer the bracing acidity. There is a subtle underlying complexity and this is remarkably intense, assertive and precise yet there is excellent power and depth as well.
With the exception of the estate’s Montrachet, my favorite 2001 from this famed domaine is the Puligny-Montrachet Combettes. Its beguiling nose reveals spiced/poached pear scents. On the palate, this light to medium-bodied offering reveals outstanding depth of fruit, a satiny texture, harmony, and loads of lush mineral, candied citrus, and spice flavors. It is supple, forward, broad, and seamless. (PR)
Pale color. Peach, nectarine, smoke and butter on the nose. Rich but bright in the mouth; despite its brisk citrus flavors, this gives a sweeter impression in the mid-palate than the Folatieres. Then quite dry and spicy on the end, with butter and sulfide notes. (ST)
