Balanced, mid-weight Burg, with a light, citrus fruit profile and still-prominent but unobtrusive oak aromas and flavors. Good depth and a silky mouthfeel make this a very pleasant, if not especially memorable, companion to a seafood dinner.

(Jean Boillot & Fils Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère) Lovely refined lemon and sea bream nose; tasty, delicate but focused, with a slightly oily texture, grapefruit, mineral and citrus palate; medium-plus finish
(Boillot Jean Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère) As a comparison, I opened this directly after the 02 Jean Boillot villages Puligny. The same medium lemon-yellow. The nose is tighter and less expressive, still deep, but without doubt finer. The palate likewise is a little tighter, with a little more citrus. Where this wine transcends the villages is the haunting finish, it really does go on and on. There we have it, less boisterous than the villages, but with much more finesse and length.
