Puligny-Montrachet 2010


Front Label

Back Label

We produced this Puligny-Montrachet from Chardonnay vines with an average age of nearly 35 years, spread between several excellent sites around the fabled village of Puligny-Montrachet and planted in limestone, marl, and light gravel soils. The growing season and harvest in 2010 were superb for Chardonnay with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 10 months in barrel, this is a wine of real fruit character, purity and finesse.

Tasting Notes

Bright pale straw in colour with hints of gold and a water white rim. Beautifully pure, rich nose of lemon, pear and oatmeal with mineral, quartz, chestnut honey, shortbread and white peach notes.

On the palate the wine is full, rich and focused with a firm acidic profile and layered texture. There are stone, mineral and smoke elements, and some nicely rounded citrus notes of lemon and lime zest, along with basil, sea salt, vanilla, butter and shortbread. The finish is long and full, yet still mineral and refreshing.
