Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2012 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne comes from the estate’s 0.8-hectare parcel close to the hamlet of Blagny. It has a pretty bouquet with hints of white peach and passion fruit at first, though with aeration this ebbs away to reveal stony, Alpine stream scents. The palate is crisp on..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is remarkably similar to the Beaux Monts except that there is a noticeable amount of menthol present. The suave, round and velvety middle weight flavors display an abundance of mouth coating dry extract along with fine complexity and very good if not truly striking length."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2012 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs-Gain comes from the last parcel before you reach La Truffiere. It has a more controlled, linear bouquet than the La Garenne at this early point: nicely focused with traces of white peach and wet limestone. The palate is adorned with a spicy, fiery opening..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Beychevelle’s style is for elegance, and this wine epitomizes that character. It is sweet, soft, with light tannins, achieving a balance of black fruits and acidity, light in structure and depth."

There is also excellent volume and solid mid-palate concentration to the rich, voluminous and palate coating flavors that..
Cellar/Tasting Notes The well-layered m?lange of red currant, blue berry and wet stone nuances marries seamlessly into slightly earthy, precise and energetic flavors that possess a firm but not hard tannic spine, all wrapped in a delicious and saline-infused finish. This is also quite understated yet stylish and I very..
Cellar/Tasting Notes Here too discreet wood spice frames a pretty and cool mix of red and dark pinot fruit that is trimmed in warm earth nuances that are also reflected by the refined, pure and silky middle weight flavors. There is fine complexity and verve to the well-defined and persistent finish. A classic Chaignots..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "With its extra touch of richness and a feeling of maturity, this remains a benchmark non-vintage Champagne. It has flavors of ripe white fruits, balancing acidity with just a touch of final softness."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "There is a hint of crushed leaf to the otherwise pretty and airy mix of various wild red berries and earth aromas. There is a seductive, even lacy texture to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a very round mouth feel that disguises an underlying muscularity as well as relatively firm tannins..
