Endowed with the finest Chardonnay plots in the world, none of Puligny’s vineyards are slackers, even at the village level. They evoke descriptors like apricots, chamomile and hazelnuts. Saint-Aubin’s vines sit on the hill above and around the bend from Puligny. The wines resemble Puligny’s but cost one-third of the price.
Overtly perfumed: hawthorn and peony flirt with white peaches and wet stones. Archetypal Puligny including its mid-palate finesse and nuanced finish.
