RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

Super. Well crafted, with a ripe texture and lush character, showing an undercurrent of fresh fruit and citrus notes that mingle with the honey, mineral, toasted almond and coconut flavors. Medium- to full-bodied.

93The Wine Advocate

...beautifully concentrated, spicy explosion of floral fruit that lingers on the palate. Aged in 40% new oak for 13 1/2 months, this powerful, complex, extracted, and full-bodied wine will provide enormous pleasure between now and 2010.

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.
