Puligny Montrachet les Champs Gains Faiveley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright light yellow. Pure but subdued aromas of lemon ice, quinine, mirabelle and spicy oak. Rich, spicy and tactile but seamless too, with excellent intensity to the flavors of musky grapefruit, pineapple and crushed stone. Finishes long, ripe and suave, with more obvious oakiness than the Meursault Blagny is currently showing. Not quite as sharply delineated or vibrant as the Blagny today but this one should reward patience....92" IWC 09/12
