An elegant wine with apple and lemon aromas and further citrus and oatmeal character on the palate. It’s fine-textured, fresh and medium bodied wine with superb depth of flavour. A lovely fresh, classic White Burgundy, with citrus fruit elegance that is the hallmark of Puligny-Montrachet, and that shows off why this part of Burgundy is highly regarded. Philippe Pernot married Madame Belicard, hence the name of the domaine. The vineyards are hers, but he farms them and makes the wines, and will add his own vineyards to the mix on inheriting them from his father, another well-respected Puligny farmer, Paul Pernot.
Puligny-Montrachet vineyards sit between Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, in Burgundy’s sub-region of Cote de Beaune. Many rate these as the finest whites in the world given the crystalline purity and depth of flavour they can achieve. Puligny can be austere in youth or so delicate that you might wonder what the fuss is about, but the wines open up in the glass with air, and over time in bottle when they develop a delicious lemon pie, honey and nut character. A great match for pork or chicken dishes, and vegetable risotto. 13.5% ABV.
