2009 Ramonet Noel, Puligny-Montrachet Champs-CanetMay. 2011
High-toned aromas with flashes of interesting ripe fruits. Very silky and intense – lovely balance too. The sweet fruit at its core grows in intensity – super!
1997 Boillot Jean-Marc, Puligny-Montrachet Champs-CanetAug. 2007
Medium golden colour. The nose is high-toned and faintly estery – not unpleasantly so but not ‘fine’ either. In the mouth it’s very ripe and sweet. Though the acidity is not bad, I still find it too sweet – not my style…
2005 Potel Nicolas, Puligny-Montrachet Champs-CanetApr. 2007
This wine hails from the Meursault side of the appellation. The nose is narrower, tigher and more melon influenced – it really doesn’t give any clues to the label. The palate is quite opulent, almost 2003 in delivery – though with much better acidity. On the finish there is still a texture from the oak – nothing major, and it will probably be gone within 6 months. Again this is a rich, powerful wine that today shows none of the classic Puligny tension.
