Once again the nose is very firmly reduced. There is slightly better energy to the lush and opulent flavors that retain the hallmark refinement of a fine Combettes, all wrapped in palate coating finish that exhibits very good depth and length. This is a big but not heavy effort.
Combettes is the most powerful premier cru in the cellar, with a nodding similarity to Bâtard-Montrachet this year! Complex aromas of iodine, peach, tangerine and smoke precede a deep, full-bodied palate with a great deal of texture and glossy amplitude. Authoritative and concentrated.Drinking Window 2018 - 2035.

(a mix of 23- and 40-year-old vines, picked second after the Puligny-Montrachet Les Perrières on September 2): Sexy ginger aroma, with very ripe stone fruits in the background. Dry, rich and solid; not as nuanced and perfumed in the mouth as the Folatières but this is more powerful. Lower-pitched than the Folatières, finishing long and a bit youthfully aggressive, with a saline quality.(ST)
