...scents of wet limestone and sea spray, just a slight menthol note developing with aeration...palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity...very pretty, elegant Bienvenue that reveals hints of blood orange and sour lemon on the precise, persistent finish.

94+ The Wine Advocate

Scents of pear, white flowers, almond paste, buttered toast, citrus zest and smok...full-bodied and satiny wine that's layered and fleshy...

More restrained and subtle on the nose compared with the Puligny Les Pucelles, a touch of white mushroom. Delicate stony citrus. But more spicy power on the palate, taut, sinewy, almost lean but very long. High acidity. Coiled, tight, mouth-watering. This is almost severe in its intensity. Power, length and freshness, an elegant powerhouse.
