An exceptionally fresh and still quite youthful nose speaks primarily of floral and ripe citrus fruit aromas and, unusually for the vintage, there is no reduction as is the case with the '04 Chevalières (see herein). There is good vibrancy and volume to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that display a bit more elegance and finesse than is usual for this wine, all wrapped in a long, attractively dry and satisfying finish. While this will clearly be capable aging longer, for my taste it has arrived at its peak though it should easily hold for up to another decade. I have tried this twice in the last two years with almost identical notes.
The 2004 Puligny-Montrachet Enseignieres from Jean-Francois Coche has a surprisingly pale color. The nose is taciturn at first, only reluctantly opening to reveal grass clipping and dandelion scents, a limestone element surfacing and then expanding. The palate is nicely balanced with a Meursault-like, walnut- inspired entry. It is elegant and suave with an understated almond and hazelnut finish that waltzes along. This is very refined and drinking beautifully. Drink now-2025. Tasted November 2013. (NM)
Pale color. Very tight, high-pitched nose yields little today. Then juicy and penetrating on the palate, with peach and nectarine flavors that titillate the salivary glands. Boasts terrific acidity for a wine from this vineyard.
Very directed struck match on the nose. Hint of liquorice. Wonderfully long and intense on the palate. Chewy finish. Super clean. 17.5/20 Points
