"Intense aromas and flavors of lemon, citrus blossom, hazelnut and toasted brioche mark this focused white. Balanced, lingering with spice and mineral notes. Drink now through 2022. 45 cases imported. –BS" (WS)

"A peach aroma is lifted by a floral element that's not yet apparent in this estate's Chassagne offerings in 2013. Juicy and suave on the palate, conveying a restrained sweetness and a light touch. Good inner-mouth tension and balance here. Still youthfully closed but the finish shows very good length and grip." (VM)

"Once again there is just enough reduction present that this would definitely benefit from a quick aeration, especially if you plan to open one upon release. The intense and racy flavors are quite restrained and focused with plenty of minerality adding an even greater sense of lift on the sappy and wonderfully long finish. This is both longer and finer than the Caillerets and the natural class of a fine Puligny is one display." (BH)
