2010 White Burgundies of Château de Puligny-Montrachet


2010 white Burgundies of Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet are awesome. Since Etienne de Montille took over in 2001 and revamped everything,  I don't think the estate has performed better. The entire range is as magnificent as the 17th century chateau.

 Starting with the humble Bourgogne Blanc from the Clos du Chateau vineyard, the magnificence is immediately obvious. Then tasting up the hierarchy, the quality is consistently excellent, culminating in the always stunning Puligny-Folatieres.

White Burgundy lovers should not miss one or more of these wines. These 2010s are greatness, and much more affordable than the competition.
