Puligny-Montrachet Charles Thomas 1988

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/139695 for £12.In the south of the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy there is a slope known as Mont Rachet[bare mountain] between the villages of Puligny and Chassagne both of which have appended Montrachet to their names,which has been famous for white chardonnay wines for centuries although there are a few reds.The commune of Puligny-Montrachet got appellation status for white wines only in 1939.There are 3 Grand Cru vineyards and 50 Premier Cru although my bottle is a village level wine.I started my bottle last night with my supper of fish cakes The wine is a very bright yellow colour.It is a dry but not bone-dry wine and there is some melon and peach style fruit but also overtones of nuts particularly almonds.There was no suggestion of vanilla or butter so it was probably not oaked I liked it and it went well with the fish cakes
