RATINGS

90+ Stephen Tanzer

...aromas of lemon, peach and stone. Juicy, intensely flavored and light on its feet; hints at minerals, peach skin and coconutty oak. At once silky and lacy, with good subtle persistence.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...soft, plump, medium-bodied wine. Minerals and stones are intermingled with buttered toast and ripe pears in this chewy-textured, rich, and fresh offering. It has outstanding depth of fruit and a beautifully nuanced character.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Les Combettes

Les Combettes is a 19.4-acre acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Puligny-Montrachet appellation in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is on the northern edge of the appellation and borders Meursault. Les Combettes is considered the appellation’s finest Premier Cru, and writer Clive Coates calls Les Combettes “the most complete wine” of the four Premier Cru vineyards in northern Puligny-Montrachet. Les Combettes, he writes, “is a mouthwatering and deliciously elegant combination of Meursault and Puligny, with the steeliness of the latter and the honeysuckle and hazelnut of the former.”

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
