Joseph Drouhin, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Pucelles 750ml 2013France, Burgundy
History & tradition: according to the often told story, the lord of Puligny in the Middle Ages divided his estate between his children: the eldest was the "chevalier" (knight), the daughters were the "pucelles" (young virgins) and the son born out of wedlock was the "bâtard".
Soil: limestone. Mixture of brown earth and pebbles.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
"Beautiful, brilliant, pale gold colour. Elegant and flowery aromas where linden (tilleul) and pastry dominate, together with lemon rind and almond paste. As the wine matures, the aromas get even finer, with notes of dried fruit, honey biscuit and syrup. On the palate, the wine delivers an impression of finesse and seduction, with a wonderful silky texture and long lasting flavors lingering a long time in the aftertaste".
The whites show great character on a fresh and neat structure. They are both precise and full of nuances. Their style is relatively homoneneous through Great Burgundy.
