2004 Chavy Philippe, Puligny-Montrachet Rue RousseauApr. 2008
Medium-plus yellow. High-toned green and yellow fruit and, for the first 15 minutes some oak. High-toned ripe fruit on the palate, slightly estery. Very bright in the mid-palate and quite wide too before fading into the finish. This has a rather full and round fruit profile, which is not my favourite style – just seems to lack for elegance. Good wine if you like the style, but doesn’t say ‘Puligny’ to me though
2004 Chavy Philippe, Puligny-Montrachet Rue RousseauAug. 2006
Medium yellow. Forward nose that has quite a blast of oak for 5 minutes before fading into a tight oak-free core. Nice texture, lovely acidity that flows into the mid-palate and finsh – providing lift and ebullience. No shrinking violet but also quite measured in delivery. This is a lovely village wine.
