PAUL PERNOT Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos De La Garenne" 2017
You Save 11% ($21.00)
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: The bouquet is dressed to impress with a sumptuous fruit profile. Lemon and grapefruit peel, aromas of honeycomb, crystalline minerals, and a touch of white pepper set the tone. The palate is fine and intense, with juicy orange citrus rounded out with vanilla bean a lick of sea spray.
About the winery: Paul Pernot has run the Domaine since 1955, and now his three sons are assisting him. They own 19 hectares of fantastic vineyards in the Cote de Beaune but sell a vast majority of it to merchants, including Drouhin. The 20% or so that they bottle themselves are pure, elegant, and delicious representations of their best parcels. While most wines see some new oak and they only use barrels for three years, he bottles early to preserve freshness and avoid any noticeable oakiness.
