    Winemaker's Notes:

    It is a glorious wine of very distinct aromas: almond paste, ferns, exotic fruit, white flowers with discreet acidity on the palate and a smooth, impressively long finish.

    The wine is vinified according to the "cuvée ronde" principle, meaning the blending of wines from different and complementary lots. In recent vintages, 12 different parcels in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet comprise the blend.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A sleek, elegant style, yet showing plenty of suppleness and fine intensity to its lime blossom, buttered brioche and white peach flavors. This powers through the long finish with grace and persistence. Drink now through 2016.

    Light and silken up front, this builds into a staunch, stolid Puligny, warmed by scents of white pepper and spice. There's a floral note of jasmine at the end, along with the saline acidity that wraps around the finish. To enjoy over the next several years with chicken fricasee.

    A classic Puligny nose of white orchard fruit, acacia and citrus nuances are in perfect keeping with the round, rich and sweet middle weight flavors that are intense, delicious and deliver subtle minerality on the linear finish. This is not presently especially complex but I like the mouth feel.
