RATINGS

92+ Stephen Tanzer

...Pure, tight and light on its feet, with brisk citrus fruit and mineral flavors giving this wine a distinctly firm impression. Not a fleshy style but very subtle..

91-93Burghound.com

...featuring white flower and hints of the exotic that can also be found on the rich and powerful medium-bodied plus flavors blessed with plenty of dry extract where the moderately austere finish spreads out like a fan.

17.5Jancis Robinson

..Hint of honeysuckle and lots of chewiness with a slightly chalky finish...

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.
