The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes is also showing well after a year in bottle, opening up in the glass with notes of fresh peach, crisp green apple, white flowers and warm pastry. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, with a muscular and concentrated core that has gained in depth and a long, precise finish.
This unctuous and delicate Premier Cru from Puligny-Montrachet, a neighbor of Meursault Les Charmes, combines strength and finesse. All fatty types of fish (turbot, John Dory, catfish) as well as creamy or beurre monté sauces will bring out its elegant roundness. Its complexity asks for rich gourmand dishes. Cellar it for 5-7 years in order to give it time to develop.
