Joseph Drouhin Puligny Montrachet 2016
'Our Puligny Montrachet is a wine of great finesse and elegance. The color is pure and bright, with light glints of white gold. The aromas evoke trees in bloom and white flesh fruit, like white peaches. With age, the aromas evolve towards almond and lightly grilled dried fruit. On the palate, there is a sensation of fresh silkiness. Long and persistent in the aftertaste, ending on an exceptional wealth of flavors, both floral and fruity.' - Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Bottle ShopThe fragrant nose on this 2015 opens immediately with a beautiful combination of orange zest, stone fruits and vanilla. The palate is medium-full-bodied with concentrated citrus, white peach and mineral notes and a kiss of oak on the finish. A very impressive Puligny from a family known for crafting excellent Puligny Montrachet wines year in and year out.
Wine SpectatorBroad and fleshy, with good cut defining the peach, lemon and pastry flavors. Turns more linear on the finish, showing good balance and a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2024.
BurghoundHere too there is a hint of residual sulfur sitting atop the well-layered nose of apple, pear, floral and discreet spice nuances. The seductively textured flavors are blessed with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that buffers the vibrant acidity on the more complex and persistent finish. This is an excellent Puligny villages.
