Vincent Dureuil Janthial Puligny Montrachet Corvée des Vignes 2014


SKU 03128


The young and talented Vincent Dureuil produces a beautirange of single-vineyard white and red Burgundies in the Cote-Chalonnaise village of Rully, where his family has been since the 1500s. His tireless vineyard work (he spends 14 hours a day among his vines during much of the growing season, doing most of the vineyard work himself) and his assured but light touch in the cellar make for some of the most surprising and incredible Burgundy values. He is equally adept with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Vincent’s wines are balanced, precise, crystal-clear in their expression ofterroir, and known for their minerality. He has converted entirely to organic viticulture, and never uses chemical pesticides or herbicides of any kind on his vineyards. 'If I see his name on a wine list, I don't give it a second thought and simply order his wine.' (Jean-Francois Coche)

The climat of Corvee des Vignes is located in Puligny Montrachet very close to the Meursault border, and in fact near the famous premier cru vineyard of Charmes in Meursault. The soil type is silt and the vines are quite old. Look for white fruits, apple blossom, fresh butter and chiseled minerality. This wine is made is super limited quantities and rarely seen in the US.

BurghoundThere is ample reduction present and this should definitely be decanted if tried young. Otherwise there is a markedly finer mouth feel to the rich, concentrated and punchy middle weight flavors that deliver excellent depth and length for a villages level Puligny. Worth considering.
