2009 Mischief and Mayhem, Puligny-Montrachet Le CailleretsNov. 2011
The nose has more width than depth, but the whole of that width has notable intensity. Likewise in the mouth this seems super-wide; the texture is just a hint plush and the mineral flavour is hard to contain in your mouth as the intensity grows. Flavour very impressively clings to the side of your mouth. Grand Cru standard…
1997 de Montille (Hubert), Puligny-Montrachet Le CailleretsNov. 2003
A medium gold colour. The nose gathers depth with time, with well integrated oak, faint petrolly notes and agrumes. Good acidity and a mildly oaky palate that is concentrated but very tight and initially a little flat in the mid-palate – certainly would benefit from another 2 or 3 years wait, the mid-palate really fills out with aeration. Super length that sneaks up on you. For drinking today there’s more fun to be found from J-M Boillots village Puligny, but for the long term, this is the wine I’d really like to have in my cellar.
