Joseph Drouhin Puligny-Montrachet 2012

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 26-Feb-2015
Light golden hued straw-yellow colour with some depth. This has a fresh, elegantly concentrated and deep nose of white and yellow stonefruits melded with layers of citrus fruits, nutty oak and gunflint reductive complexities and lemon curd MLF nuances. The aromatics unfold softly, revealing a firm core. Medium-full bodied, tightly bound and concentrated flavours of white stonefruits, florals, flint and minerals form a moderately dense and taut core. The mouthfeel is softly textured with fresh, underlying acidity providing firm drive and linearity. The wine is well integrated, and has vitality and energy with subtle power and follows a fine phenolic line leading to a long, lingering finish with nutty, toasty oak and minerals. This is a softly bound and well-integrated Puligny-Montrachet with white stonefruit, nutty and flinty flavours. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 5-7 years. Grapes and must from regular contract growers, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new oak. 18.5/20 Feb 2015 RRP $99.99
