"An airy and cool nose is comprised mostly by admirably layered white orchard fruit and soft citrus scents. Vibrant and intense middle weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the wonderfully long and complex finale. This isn't as rich as the Folatières but it's notably finer."

"Pale straw-yellow. Aromas of peach, pear and spices, plus a whiff of hazelnut. Plump and sweet on the palate, showing more depth of fruit and energy than the Champs-Gains. In an essentially pliant style, finishing with good sweetness and breadth and a touch of warmth. Longer than the Champs-Gains."

"(from old vines): Bright yellow. Less relentlessly about fruit than most of the preceding samples, offering aromas of ripe peach, musky hazelnut and fresh herbs. Quite smooth and ripe, even a touch warm, but showing better definition than the other premier crus here today. A more rectilinear wine, finishing with good length. Nicely combines power and elegance."

"Tank sample. Pale straw. Light as air, lots of chewy texture and raciness. Bone dry and rather noble. Minerals and citrus. Dense."

Rather more advanced with a soft and plump nose, but attractive white fruit notes too. Quite discreet at first and there is a touch too much biscuit from the oak, but the finish shows well.

The Combettes offers up a richer nose than the Folatières, with aromas of pear and preserved lemon mingling with hazelnut and toasted wheat. On the palate the wine is more hulking and four-square, with serious depth, dimension and length.

Puligny Blancs have a distinguished bouquet of almond paste, ferns, tropical fruit, amber, and white flowers. Their discreet acidity leaves room for a very soft mouthfeel and an impressive long finish.
