GILLES BOUTON PULIGNY MONTRACHET 1ER CRU 6 PACK
AVAILABLE TO SHIP NOVEMBER 2022
We met Gilles Bouton back in the days of our hotel-barge Le Papillon when we were cruising the inland waterways in search of the real Burgundy. I remember the first taste of his Saint-Aubin 1er Cru ‘en Remilly’, thinking we had discovered the best deal in white Burgundy ever.
Two different Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru
from Gilles Bouton
If you have not yet tried the stellar 2020 Burgundy Whites, why not start at the top?
Here's a mixed case to celebrate the arrival!
You get 3 bottles of each:
Domaine Gilles Bouton Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'La Garenne' 2020
Gilles Bouton’s Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘La Garenne’ touches the premier cru ‘Champs gains’ as well as the Saint Aubin 1er Cru ‘Murgers de Dents de Chien’ (which Gille also has a holding in. So we are in noble vineyard territory here. This is a golden wine, in many senses of the word. Ripe fruit, almond undertones, green apple minerality. Toasty croissant and flint combine in the mid-palate with just a touch of honey. Subtle and balanced. Concentrated. ‘Harmonious’ is the word that springs to mind.
Domaine Gilles Bouton Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru 'Sous le Puits' 2020
The vineyard is located at the top of the hill, overlooked by the woodland of Trézin and Blagny. Fantastic terroir that has a perfect balance of intense ‘stony’ minerality yet richness emerging, especially with some ageing.The winemaker has achieved their aim of expressing this character in the wine, the mineral notes dominate with a complexity of fruit, nuts, spice, great length.
