Puligny's tight, stony character shows well here, in a wine that has taut acidity, fresh pear and citrus flavors on a base of a strong wood and fruit skin texture. The acidity is of a piece with the rest of the wine, which is dominated by grapefruit and lime to the finish. An impressive wine that needs 3–4 years. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports.
