The 2014 Puligny Montrachet has a little more vivacity and precision than the Meursault, perhaps more mineralité too. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry with good weight, tons of freshly sliced lime and kiwi fruit here with a bravura of a finish. Not a complex Puligny, but it compensates with its joie-de-vivre.

90 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 222 - Dec 2015)

Bright pale yellow. Ripe peach and a bouquet of flowers on the nose. Boasts a silky mouthfeel, but the flavors of modestly ripe orchard fruits and pungent rocky minerality are still quite young. Firm acidity enhances the wine's minerality but this village wine will be better for a year or two of patience. The tactile finish shows sneaky length.
