Good drive and straight power from the off. This is seriously enticing. A mineral plain in the middle is fresh and broad through this very smart Puligny. There is a nice luminosity, a joyous lifted brightness, no hard acidity or bracing clench - the feel is just pure, sleek and bright. A pure clean softness that is impressive and fun. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2018)

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Garenne wafts from the glass with notes of juicy apples, pastry cream, sweet spices and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with succulent acids and a charming, front-loaded profile that will give pleasure on release. Rating: 90-92 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru, which was taken from cask, has a delightful array of scents: orange blossom, hints of apricot and crushed stone, turning quite floral with continued aeration. The palate is very well balanced, displaying walnut and smoke on the entry, and quite flinty in style, maybe just lacking the complexity of the Meursault Charmes toward the finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2032 Rating: 91 Neal Martin, 2019)

Joseph Drouhin

Despite the size of their vineyard holding, not all Drouhin's wines come from their own domaine, but most of the other wines do come from long-term contracts, such as exists with the Marquis de Laguiche wines. In all but name these wines are 'Domaine' wines, and the vineyards are cared for and the wines vinified with exactly the same care.
