RATINGS

92-95The Wine Advocate

A stunning wine, the Les Pucelles displays an intensely spicy and floral nose, followed by a complex flavor profile of deeply roasted peaches, apricots, and minerals. This is one of the most profound Pulignys I have tasted.

91Wine Spectator

Lovely, offering a supersupple, extra-thick, elegant midpalate, delivering little flavor shocks of vanilla bean, mineral, spice, pear and pie tart.
