From soil full of clay, limestone and stone. This Puligny Montrachet is very floral and unapologetically fruity, with aromas of citrus fruits and more exotic fruits like papaya and mango, combined with some ripe minerality and aromas of roasted nuts. In the mouth the acidity is light and bright, and a slightly sweet side from the ripe vintage is evident. Very well balanced and absolutely delicious white Burgundy.
About the Wine Maker
One of Burgundy's best kept secrets is this domain, which has been run by Claudine Gaunoux since the late 1990s. Throughout the year, she works meticulously in the vineyards to prune and tackle potential plant and grape problems at the source. As a result, Claudine harvests only the best grapes, which are then vinified and matured in stainless steel tanks. 'Wood is make-up for bad wines' is her adage. The fact is that her wines - with pure fruit flavors and minerality - are different from others. And as the connoisseurs know, Gaunoux's wines can be stored for a brilliantly long time.
