High quality Premier Cru Puligny-Montrachet at under $100 a bottle!
 
In March I paid my first visit to Domaine de la Choupette in Puligny-Montrachet to taste through their range.
This 13 hectare domaine is quite new being established in 1992. However, they already have a fine portfolio including a brace of Premier Cru whites from Puligny-Montrachet.
The tasting was excellent and confirmed several things. The quality of 2016 wines is very high and secondly, you do not have to pay huge amounts to purchase fine quality wines from top Premier Cru vineyards.
The wine of the tasting was their Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne. La Garenne is located high on the Puligny hill above Les Folatieres. Here the soil is thinner and the air cooler resulting in a wine of finesse and delicacy. It is a part of Puligny I like very much.
This wine from the Premier Cru La Garenne is, considering the general shortfall in production in 2016, absolutely unbelievable value. Most Puligny Premier Crus will cost you around $200.00 a bottle. This is half the price. Where else can you buy 1er Cru Puligny for under $100.00? 
Delicious drinking at a fantastic price.

Darren Harris: From extraordinarily old vines planted in 1914! Piercing nose of citrus, pear, minerals and white flowers.  A hint of oak hidden below. Saline and seductive. Tighter and more mineral than Les Chalumaux with strong notes of grapefruit and wet stone. The palate is elegant and textured from the old vines with a delightful acid-led freshness, a trademark of the 2016 vintage.

Jomain Pucelles Label

Domaine Jomain Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles 2016

Located 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."
We have a little of the super 2016 from Domaine Jomain left.

Excellent value for this fine vineyard.
 
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.
