Les Demoiselles is a 0.6 hectare white vineyard immediately to the right (north) of Montrachet. Here there are just three owners. Jasper Morris MW says "The tiny Puligny-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is both very rare and potentially of exceptional quality, so highly sought-after."
 
It is notably stony with a little more topsoil than Chevalier-Montrachet above. Indeed part of the vineyard owned by the powerful negociants Jadot and Latour was reclassified as Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru in the late 1930's (today, they still use the name Les Demoiselles on their labels).

The Au Pied du Mont Chauve vines were originally owned by Bernard Colin and were purchased by the Picard family (owner of Au Pied du Mont Chauve and Chateau Chassagne-Montrachet) in 2007. Their parcel is in the prime location at the south end, right alongside Montrachet.
 
The domaine has one custom made 350 litre barrel to hold their entire production. That's 466 bottles for the world! This really is a special vineyard, not unlike Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Dent de Chien, except even harder to find. The location, rarity and quality justifies its premium over other Premier Crus.

Darren Harris: Harvested early - 5 September. The 2015 is richer and more powerful on the nose than the 2014. The mid palate has higher glycerol and more texture. There is heaps of extract - Grand Cru weight. To be honest it doesn't remind me of any other Premier Cru - it has that pineapple character, which combined with multi layered complexity, immediately sends me 10 metres south to Montrachet. And more so than the higher acid 2014. The wine finishes long and fresh, surprisingly without oak influence (the domaine uses a specially made barrel for the vinification as the quantity produced is so small. It was not new in 2015). I was very impressed with all of the 2015 whites at this domaine but the wine that stands out, and even benefits from the character of the vintage, is Les Demoiselles.

Jomain 2015 Combettes Header
Domaine Jomain Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes 2015
Combottes lies directly across the border from the Meursault 1er Crus Charmes and Perrieres. Jasper Morris says "(Combottes) shares with its neighbours the plumpness of top Meursault without losing the refinements and mineral elegance of great Puligny." 
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": A nose to fall into; slightly cushioned by sweet oak, it's an inviting sweet yellow citrus too. Hmm... again slightly padded by oak, but just a really beautiful mouth-watering sweet acidity with flavours very much to the mineral side. There's a little richness here, but simply a gorgeousness too - bravo. Decadent drinking!

Darren Harris: Unmistakable Puligny nose of flowers, citrus, stonefruit and minerals. A little richer both on the nose and palate than the 2014 Perrieres tasted prior, but still with exceptional freshness and vivacity. Terrific intensity and mouthfeel, refined and palate coating, with vibrant fruit balanced by Puligny's inherent acidity.

Normally $182.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $137.50
