RATINGS

92-94The Wine Advocate

Touches of oyster shell on the subtle marine-influenced bouquet that gradually opens in the glass. The palate is clean and fresh on the Zen-like entry: precise with keen mineral notes...this is what is called "killer juice"!

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Musky stone fruits and sweet oak on the nose. Large-scaled, intense and bright, with intense stone fruit and hazelnut flavors framed by bright lemony acidity

92-94Burghound.com

... notably floral nose features notes of pear, apple, lemon zest, spice and the barest hint of wood treatment. There is outstanding mid-palate density to the caressing yet powerful flavors that are at once succulent yet racy...

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.
