Puligny-Montrachet: Tour de la montagne

June 25, 2018

It is always very learnful to taste side by side the Puligny Montrachet wines blind against their St-Aubin peers, as they are located on the same mountain, touching each other… The St-Aubins performed great… But the Puligny’s from Pierre Yves Colin Morey (Le Trezin) and the Puligny 1er Cru from Henri Boillot were absolutely killer wines!!

2014 Gerard Thomas Saint-Aubin Champ Tirant
Light nose of honey, citrus, yellow grass dried in the sun… Taste of green apple, light chalk, nice citrus finish (90 points)

2014 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Saint-Aubin La Pucelle
Nice nose of flintstones, matchstick, noisettes grillées, citrus, honey… Super delicious, smoky, citrus, flintstones, super finish, great great village wine at 1er Cru level easy!! (93 points)

2011 Louis Jadot Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
