(these vines were less touched by frost than those in Meursault and Chassagne): Palish yellow. The most subtle and classic of Drouhin's trio of Côte de Beaune village wines, offering aromas and flavors of pear, white peach and minerals. Suave, dry and fine-grained, showing noteworthy intensity and grip without any phenolic hardness. Finishes with subtle rising length and mineral tension. With an element of youthful austerity, this village wine is quite classic in style. (ST)
Here too there is a hint of residual sulfur sitting atop the well-layered nose of apple, pear, floral and discreet spice nuances. The seductively textured flavors are blessed with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that buffers the vibrant acidity on the more complex and persistent finish. This is an excellent Puligny villages.
The 2016 Puligny villages from Maison Drouhin is lovely, offering up a very classic aromatic profile of pear, white peach, chalky soil tones, a touch of butter, vanillin oak and a lovely floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely complex, with a plump core of very pure fruit, fine soil signature, bright, zesty acids and fine length and grip on the exuberant finish. This is going to drink beautifully from the moment that it is released. (Drink between 2018-2030)
Broad and fleshy, with good cut defining the peach, lemon and pastry flavors. Turns more linear on the finish, showing good balance and a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2024.
A bouquet of nutmeg, peach and citrus pith precedes a cool, elegant and medium-full wine which is still a little tightly-wound after its recent bottling. Expect to see this expatiate in six months’ time. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026. (WK)
The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet Village felt quite austere on the nose following on from the Meursault and Chassagne-Montachet. This feels aloof and distant, then again, that can be attractive in the right setting. The palate is crisp on the entry with light peach and rosewater notes. There is more going on on the finish here, and there is a pleasant spicy tang on the aftertaste. Give it a year in bottle for the aromatics to develop. (NM)
