Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles 2011 is rather muted on the nose and remains very reticent. There are light dewy green-apple scents that begin to appear, but it is very stubborn. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry: quite grassy with green apple and kiwi fruit, segueing toward a balanced but tightly wound finish that needs another couple of years to unwind. This is very classy and should age with style.
This bright version evokes lime blossom, apple, hazelnut and stone notes. Lean and athletic, presenting a firm yet refined structure and a long finish of citrus and mineral. The oak is beautifully integrated.
