RATINGS

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Reticent, even austere, on the nose, hinting at honeyed depths. Then fat, full and powerful, with very ripe pineapple and apricot flavors framed by firm acidity. An impressively structured grand cru with terrific fruit and grip

REGION

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