2019 Puligny-Montrachet “Les Enseignères”: (from a .5 ha parcel just underneath Bâtard). An exceptionally floral suffused nose offers up spiced aromas of pear, passion fruit and white peach. The dense, muscular and powerful medium weight flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract while exhibiting excellent length on the citrusy finale where the only reproach is a touch of warmth. This is a big Puligny villages that remains balanced and altogether impressive.
