Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 92.3 points

  • Textbook Puligny-Montrachet with a score that is probably underrating based off the fact that my palate has veered more towards a creamier, oakier, more "Meursault-like" style. Steely, lots of lemon, grapefruit, a touch of subtle oak, impeccable balance, and quite frankly, not a lot of evolution for a 14 year-old white wine. This tells me that 1) 2002 was a ridiculously good, ageless vintage and 2) this was a great bottle. I wish they could all be like this.

  • Purchased on release from Premier Cru. Nose: Lots of well-integrated oak. Salty. Minerals Palate: Very big on entry, but taught and racy throughout. Lots of acid, and lemon with steely minerality. Very lively and juicy but serious. Slides nicely into a lemony and acidic finish. Nose: 4/6, Palate: 6/6, Finish: 5/6, Je ne sais quoi (wild card): 1/2 = 16/20 = 92/100
