Tasting Note:

A glorious Puligny of nuance, depth and richness. Intense, full and fruity but so fine and silky with it. Remarkably deft and precise for such a concentrated and rich wine. A texture of melting butter and ripe juicy flavours of yellow fruits on the palate with a hint of violet adding complexity. An exquisitely fine, lacy, mineral thread weaves everything together, a minerality not commonly shown in this cuvée. A rather special Combettes that displays many Grand Cru qualities. Sauzet's example of Combettes is one of the great Premiers Crus of Puligny, up there with Caillerets and Leflaive's Pucelles. From 50-65-year-old vines in the well-exposed Combettes vineyard. Like Champs Canet this is mid-slope but with a little less limestone and more clay.
