Produced from 7 separate perfectly exposed plots spread around the village totalling 2.7ha, with an average vine age of 40 years. Yielding just 35hi/ha in 2020, Jacques picks all fruit by hand in small baskets, presses lightly to maximise fruit and avoid bitterness from over-pressed skins, with the Chardonnay juice then cold clarified before fermented in tanks. The nose is rich and concentrated, with a steely/fresh backbone. The palate is poised, razor-sharp and is complex and fulsome. Notes of white stone fruit, citrus, roasted nuts, candied grapefruit, marzipan and spice. The oak supports rather than dominates, and the minerality adds structure and a wonderful sense of completeness. A great Puligny!
