- ABV 13%
- Closure: Cork
The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles offers similar richness to the Folatières but with a hints of Meursault-like nuttiness developing in the glass, plus hazelnut and lychee. The palate is very well balanced with a harmonious texture, a fine bead of acidity, a little spicier than the Folatières though quintessentially Puligny-like on the strict, linear and quite saline finish. Very fine—there is plenty of personality here.
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate #234 (Dec 2017)
(frost cut production by 30% in 2016): Pale yellow. The closest of these premier crus to exotic on the nose, offering scents of ripe peach, hazelnut and honey. Compellingly rich and sweet on the palate, but with its sucrosité leavened by a distinctly sappy quality. As dense and broad as this wine is, it also shows good chewy firmness on the very long, tactile back end. Nicely ripe for the vintage, this wine will need some time to burn off some of its baby fat. But showing very well considering the recent bottling.
Stephen Tanzer - Vinous
A floral and bright white with lemons, sandalwood, cream and cooked apples following through to a full body, which expands on the palate with so much fruit and texture. Lemon rind and stone. Solid young white. Drink on release or hold.
There is a subtle whiff of exoticism to the elegant and ultra-fresh aromas of honeysuckle, tangerine skin, pear compote and spice. Once again there is a terrific sense of energy to the racy, intense and gorgeously refined middle weight flavors that culminate in a highly refined, balanced and sneaky long finale. This is textbook Pucelles that should age effortlessly.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Rich with a hint of creaminess on the nose. So much there even though masses of acidity on the palate. Very youthful indeed. Still almost raw but one can so easily see that all building blocks are there. Wonderful peacock’s tail on the end.
