If you are looking for a white that is a cut above the rest this season, then look no further than Château de Meursault’s Puligny Champ Canet 2019. The estate was notable for the success of its whites in 2019 and this cuvée, hailing from the estate’s oldest vines, is unsurprisingly its most intense wine. From a 0.5 hectare parcel of old vines next door to Meursault Perrières, it is very much fruit-driven compared to its more mineral neighbour, but the fruit is of great complexity and raciness. The palate is a crisp, large-scale, slow-building wave of golden fruit; gaining momentum gradually and steadily to reveal a silkily textured Puligny of significant substance. Offering notes of mandarin, mirabelle and clementine with just a hint of smoke and pain d’épices, this is deep but vital and focused, with a rapier-like freshness that cuts through the sensual fruit. A Puligny of mind-boggling depth and balance.
