This domaine is run with great skill by Jean Pascal’s daughter-in-law Alexandra (alongside her responsibilities as deputy mayor for the village!). The Puligny Montrachet here is superb and we feel offers very good value. Harvesting took place at the end of August, early enough to retain a seam of zippy acidity in the wines that balances the ripe fruit in this warm vintage. The wines are bottled under high-spec stoppers manufactured in Italy. These eliminate the risk of cork taint but are cleverly made to allow a controlled but minimal exchange of oxygen.
“Loads of sparky energy and density on the palate. Tight structure, persistent with a long mineral finish. Floral and ripe with a slight hint of nuttiness. Will keep well for the medium term but certainly approachable on release.”
