Henri de Villamont, Puligny-Montrachet

£73.87
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2016 vintage. A wine of great finesse, distinguished and elegant. The colour is pure and bright, with light glints of white gold. The aromas evoke trees in bloom and white flesh fruit, like white peaches. With age, the aromas evolve towards almond and lightly grilled dried fruit. On the palate, there is a sensation of fresh silkiness. Long and persistent in the aftertaste, ending on an exceptional wealth of flavours, both floral and fruity.Food pairings: Lobster, crayfish, poultry in creamy sauce, Brie de Meaux, Reblochon...

Tasting Note:
Aromas of almond, fern, amber and white flowers. The acidity in the mouth is subtle and suberbly balanced.
