This Clos (enclosed vineyard) is in the village of Puligny-Montrachet, yet is “just” classified Bourgogne. For a true Burgundy “experience,” this is hard to beat for under $40/bottle. Tropical and stone fruits, crushed rocks, citrus blossoms and lemon custard smells and flavors, all elevated by a jolt of acidity just before you swallow. 2015 was a particularly warm year in Burgundy, resulting in a fruitier wine than usual. Drinking really well for a young White Burgundy, especially one from the Côte d’Or.
The Domaine du Chateau de Puligny Montrachet was purchased by the de Montille family in 2012. Etienne de Montille started making the wines in 2001. Now as owner, the same care put into the Domaine de Montille wines, start to finish, go into these wines. Fans and collectors of Puligny Montrachet are advised to include these in their collection.
