This is sufficiently reduced that it presently masks the fruit and if you're tempted to try a bottle in its youth I would strongly advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is outstanding density to the focused and powerful middle weight plus flavors that stain the palate with dry extract that also helps to buffer the intensely mineral-driven finale that just goes on for minutes. This is flat out brilliant though note that it will not be an early drinker. In sum, this is a genuine 'wow' wine. *Outstanding*
Knockout nose combines ripe stone fruits, lemon, lime, smoky minerals, clove and marzipan. Sappy and thick, with the brisk lemon and lime fruit element currently dominated by soil-driven saline minerality. This very backward, salty wine boasts terrific breadth and more than enough extract to buffer its five grams of acidity. Splendid. (ST) 94+
The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère has a taut and linear, but intense bouquet with attractive apple blossom, flint and orange zest aromas that open with a sense of confidence in the glass. The palate is well balanced with quite a piercing citric entry. There is very good weight in the mouth here, feisty and spicy with a dab of fresh ginger perking up the finish. Give this a couple of years and you should have a fine Puligny-Montrachet. (NM)
