White Burgundies from Puligny-Montrachet. 
Fine reviews from Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

Jomain FamilyWhilst in Burgundy a year or two back I was leafing through Bill Nanson's The Finest Wines of Burgundy A Guide to the Best Producers of the Cote d'Or and Their Wines when I can across Domaine Jomain - in Puligny-Montrachet.

Puligny-Montrachet is small and I have driven through it so many times that I was surprised that I had not seen their name on one of the many signs directing people to producers. The fact that they were in Nanson's book alongside the well-known, big names of Burgundy suggested some investigation was warranted.

I contacted the domaine and was invited to visit and taste the wines the following day. I arrived at the address supplied only to find I could could not locate the domaine. A quick call to Philippe Jomain and I heard a voice from up one of the side lanes calling to me. There was indeed a sign out the front but the location explained why I had never seen it.

Domaine Jomain is small - just 8 hectares - but they have some prime appellations. Today we offer the lovely 2016's from stock at a 15% discount. 
I also point out what serious value for money these wine are.

Jomain Perrieres label
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Less attack, more refinement to this faintly spiced and very attractive nose. More depth, more minerality, more intensity - this starts a little less generous than the villages wine, but there is more of everything here. Not an overt acidity, but ingraining flavour and with plenty of balance. Very good - to wait for again. Super length.

Darren Harris: 
Puligny-Montrachet provides a variety of terroirs and wine styles. The Grand Crus and the Premier Crus alongside are rich and powerful. But travel a little further to the north of the commune and you will find vineyards that produce wines that are more delicate and mineral. One of these is Les Perrieres, named after the quarries. Perrieres is a wine of finesse. It is not a blockbuster. It is the dancer of Puligny-Montrachet. Light on its feet yet still absolutely absorbing.
The 2016 Perrieres from Jomain is long, fine and very fresh. Loaded with minerals. It is acid and racy with a gorgeous intensity and persistence. My type of wine. A terrific example of what makes Puligny-Montrachet the go-to commune for White Burgundy.

Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 
Les Combottes 2016
Normal Price $189.95
Special $161.50
Jomain Combettes Label
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Hmm not the largest nose, but a very attractive one - a vibration of minerality here. More relaxed, with a wider panaorama of flavour that melts over the palate - still plenty of rocks in this, very interesting flavour and the easist to appreciate. Delicious.

Darren Harris: 
If the Puligny Les Perrieres is about finesse Les Combettes is about mouthfeel. The vineyard is on the border of Meursault - directly across from Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes and Perrieres. And there are some similarities. Jasper Morris MW says "it shares with its neighbours the plumpness of top Meursault without losing the refinement and mineral elegance of great Puligny". 
Jomain's 2016 is open and quite generous. In addition to the minerality and flowers there is a little (Meursault) honeycomb. It is rounder and fuller, but never losing its acid drive. In the mouth it has more weight but is certainly not heavy. Powerful and long it is a great contrast to Perrieres' elegance.

Maltroye Batard 2010 Label

Chateau de la Maltroye Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2010
3 bottles available

One barrel produced (300 bottles). In new oak, of course. Great nervosity and serious depth and length. 

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer:
(from vines planted in 1937). Fresh peach, orange oil and spices on the nose. Less obviously minerally today than the Dents de Chien, but dense, tactile and chewy, offering an impression of strong extract to its pineapple and oak flavors. Finishes strong, long and classically dry. Cournut told me these vines were located next to Niellon's holding under Montrachet, in the best part of the cru. "The wine is always fresh and never heavy," he said. 92-94 Points

Normally $395.00
Special $295.00
