Gerard Boudot believes his outstanding 1999 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes is the finest wine he has produced from this vineyard since 1992. Produced from over 50 year-old vines, it sports a rich, spice-laden nose as well as a hugely-concentrated, medium-to-full-bodied character. This profound wine has great richness, superb balance, and loads of depth to its stone, liquid mineral, and spice-flavored core.
(50 year old vines and Boudot believes this is the finest Combettes he has made in 20 years; 40% new wood). An incredible explosion of high-octane lemon-lime fruit extract with flavors that are the essence of minerals and wet rocks. This is pungent, tight and penetrating with awesome mid-palate density and richness with remarkable length all framed by virtually perfect acid balance. Don't let the label fool you, this is a grand cru drinking experience. Brilliant!
Deeply pitched aromas of smoke, lime and peach blossom. Dense, even opulent, but penetrating, with lively acidity contributing to the impression of purity and delicacy. Quite youthful today owing to its steely spine. Even longer than the Champs-Canet but less showy at present. Became increasingly aromatic as it opened in the glass. A superb premier cru, as always. 93(+?) points
