2015 Henri Darnat Puligny Montrachet 1er cru
Henri Darnat Puligny Montrachet is made with 100% Chardonnay grapes. The wine is from 80 year old vines from soil rich in clay and limestone. The grapes are picked at full ripeness giving the wine a lovely golden hue. The Puligny Montrachet has been aged in 50% oak barrels.
The nose is classic of a fine white Burgundy. Fine lemon flesh and peel ,with richer touches of tropical fruit, slight vanilla, floral and nutty touches, with a firm minerality. The palate has an amazing structure. The acidity is well balanced with rich citrus fruits, peach and touches of nuttiness and vanilla. The finish is very long with a refreshing yet richly satisfying end.
Best paired with shellfish and fish dishes.
