The wines from the Pernot family in Puligny-Montrachet are well-known throughout the world for their classic Puligny and Bâtard style. They have rich concentration and fruit, but more importantly, good acidity that allow them to age gracefully and harmoniously.

"Here the nose offers another notch up in aromatic complexity from the Pucelles with a very pretty combination of honeysuckle, spice, pear and citrus notes where the latter element continues onto the rich, pure and solidly powerful medium full flavors that possess ample palate staining dry extract and a hugely long finish. The underlying material is most impressive and there is so much extract that this will be approachable young yet certainly repay medium-term keeping. Good stuff."

"Pale yellow. Youthfully imploded nose hints at peach and smoky lees. Closed in the mouth as well, showing a slight bitter edge to the flavors of herbs, flowers and crushed stone. Best today on the juicy, echoing finish, which shows a subtle saline character."
