"...floral-edged stone fruits and crisp pear. In the mouth, nuttiness and Cox's pippin apples, very good acidity in a fine lime and mineral line that runs through the buttery ripeness and oak toastiness into the finish." Tom Cannavan

Pierre Bourée's Puligny-Montrachet Villages 2017 yields from one of the Côte de Beaune's most famous villages, and is regarded as the home of Chardonnay; a reputation based on the general consensus that the world's best dry white wines are produced here. Bourée's 2017 highlights why, with all the minerality and concentration you would expect.

Pierre Bourée still uses old wooden vats rather than stainless steel and the grapes are trodden by foot. And last but not least, Bourée only release their fine wines when they are ready to drink - a very refreshing practice in today's market.

"What a delightful nose on this village Puligny, vinified and matured in oak barrels for 14 months. There is oak, but it is fragrant and creamy, floral edges and hint so exotic spices rather than anything too obvious, with a gossamer fruit quality beneath; floral-edged stone fruits and crisp pear. In the mouth, nuttiness and Cox's pippin apples, very good acidity in a fine lime and mineral line that runs through the buttery ripeness and oak toastiness into the finish." Tom Cannavan

Lifted floral peach with a good fresh creamy centre and base. Fine cut of acidity balancing fat centre and concentration, with perfectly integrated vanilla from the barrel, sustained by underlying minerality into a long finish.
