Drouhin Puligny-Montrachet 2015 75cl 13.5% ABV
Drouhin Puligny-Montrachet 2015
A White Wine of great finesse, distinguished and elegant. The colour is pure and bright, with light glints of white gold. The aromas evoke trees in bloom and white flesh fruit, like white peaches. With age, the aromas evolve towards almond and lightly grilled dried fruit. On the palate, there is a sensation of fresh silkiness. Long and persistent in the aftertaste, ending on an exceptional wealth of flavours, both floral and fruity.
It is a very homogeneous vintage. It is ripe and its aromatic structure is supported by its acidity balance. From charming to more intense, deep and complex.
The middle part of the Côte de Beaune is famous for its great wines. Puligny-Montrachet, as one of the villages of the Côte des Blancs, is one of these celebrated appellations.
Made famous by the illustrious Montrachet Grand Cru vineyard, Puligny has an ancient origin. Puligny may have belonged to a certain Pullius during the Roman empire. His estate was called "Pulliniacus" from which is derived the name Puligny (i.e. the property of Pullius, a fairly common name at the time).
