2019 Joseph Drouhin
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
18-20% New Oak. Only barrels with light and long toasting. According to Veronique 2019 has good definition of place and that seems to be borne out with this tasting. There is a nice feel - clean and long. Sleek too a well polished middle glides across the palate. There is a mineral tinge to this - but essentially it seems quite easy and joyful Puligny. On the finish there is more heft and power. Real pleasure - and quite accessible. L&S (Nov 2020)

Apart from the hint of exotic fruit that complements the ripe-pear and discreet vanilla aromas, this is a classic example of Puligny-Montrachet, with the balance of creaminess and elegance we expect from this appellation. The finish is long and delicate. Drink or hold. Rating: 93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Jul 2021)
Ripe and attractively layered aromas are comprised by freshly sliced white peach, acacia blossom and citrus confit. The succulent and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess a lovely mouthfeel that carries over to the balanced, sappy and impressively long finish. This is an excellent Puligny villages and well-worth checking out. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2021)
Bursting with notes of pear, orange oil, white flowers and toast, the 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Village is medium to full-bodied, charming and enveloping, with succulent acids and a textural, giving profile. It will drink well young. Rating: 89 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
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.
