Save 25% - just $139.95 a bottle. An incredible price for Les Pucelles

Jomain FamilyLocated across the road from the Grand Crus Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet the Premier Cru Les Pucelles is one of Burgundy's finest 1er Crus. Jasper Morris MW goes one step further saying "...this is one of Burgundy's very finest white-wine vineyards." Full stop!
He goes on to say "Les Pucelles never seems to be dumb or four-square in the way that its neighbour, Batard-Montrachet, can be in its youth. Instead it is a magical, floral wine, the quintessence of Puligny."
When I visited and tasted the 2016's at Domaine Jomain late last year the domaine was unable to allocate me any Les Pucelles. However, our relationship has developed and I am absolutely delighted that the Philippe has found some bottles for us.
To celebrate the winefall instead of the usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount I have increased the savings to 25%. That makes this wine just $139.95 a bottle - remarkable value for Puligny's top Premier Cru. Be quick, the quantity available is limited.

Darren Harris:  The domaine owns 0.43 hectare planted exactly 50 years ago. Tasted over a 24 hour period. At first exuberent with white flowers, minerals, some confit fruit. But with contact with the air the wine tightened and elongated to show citrus and stones with floral notes and a dab of toast from the oak. It is seductive with a medium body displaying plenty of texture and a clean acid finish. A lovely effort from a top white Burgundy vintage.

At around 1/3 the price of Leflaive this is an incredible bargain.

Louis Latour Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Grand Cru 2016
97-98 Points!
2 bottles left
There is no better white wine in the world than Chevalier-Montrachet. Most white Burgundy aficionados prefer it to the more highly priced Montrachet as Chevalier has more minerality and line. 

Chevalier-Montrachet lies up-slope from Montrachet where it is slightly cooler. Here the topsoil is thinner and stonier due to the steeper slope. The bedrock is also different as there is a geological fault line between the two vineyards. The bedrock in Chevalier contains more limestone and is similar to the Cote de Nuits. These features combine to create the much-loved minerality of Chevalier-Montrachet.

In 1913 Louis Latour purchased a 0.51 hectare parcel at the northern end of the appellation. This parcel has the sobriquet Les Demoiselles in honour of the 19th century owners Mademoiselles Adeles and Julie Voillot, the daughters of a Beaune General who died without marrying.

James Suckling Tasting Report:
Compacted and powerful yet always in finesse and beauty. Great transparency. Full-bodied, tight and focused with lemongrass, stone, dried lemons and green apples. Excellent length. Drink a couple of years after release and beyond. 97-98 Points

Landed Price $799.95
Pre Arrival Price $599.95
