Puligny Montrachet, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, Jean Pascal et Fils 2017
100% Chardonnay in aged in oak for 9 to 10 months (25% new)
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.
Jean Pascal runs his small family domaine in the village of Puligny by meticulous traditional winemaking. With small parcels of vineyards located across 4 communes in the Cote de Beaune and a reputation for excellent valued white burgundies, his Puligny Montrachet does not disappoint. It is wonderfully elegant, not overly oaked and retains a lovely concentration of fruit, displaying butterscotch and hazelnuts notes, and finishing with complex flavours of brioche and cinnamon.
