Another super elegant white Burgundy with very delicate and seductive floral notes, plus fresh and candied lemons. Elegant and polished on the palate with a long and complex, chalky finish. Try it in 2020.
The Faiveley whites have been improving every bit as emphatically as the domaine's reds over the last five years, favouring focus, precision and sensitive oak handling. This cool site has performed particularly well in 2017, showing plenty of zip and minerality alongside pear and lemongrass flavours and 30% new wood spice. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027. (TA)
Bright, fresh, green-tinged yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, mint, menthol and white pepper. This is from a higher-altitude site in a hot spot on well-drained iron-rich limestone soil and always shows high maturity, notes technical director Jérôme Flous. At once penetrating and chewy, showing excellent lemony cut as well as a medicinal nuance to its very primary flavors of yellow grapefruit and white pepper. Conveys a strong impression of acidity but also an element of sweetness from the mature fruit. The long, vibrant finish shows a lovely mix of salty and sweet elements, which Flous says is typical of the 2017 vintage. But this is still tightly wound, as it was among the last wines here to finish its secondary fermentation.(Stephen Tanzer writing for Vinous.com)
The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru comes from a single parcel of just over one hectare. It has a taut, linear bouquet with scents of Golden Delicious apple, wax resin and almond. The palate is well balanced, offering orange zest and apricot, a keen thread of acidity and a bright, quite tensile finish. This should be delicious virtually straight from bottling. (NM)
