Jean-Claude Ramonet, Les Enseignères Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru 2014, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A white Burgundy that captures well-integrated oak restraint, balanced fruit and a non-angular, yet elegant style combined with expressive, floral notes.
Lemon in color, this wine has a nose of light oak and cinnamon-and-clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied chardonnay expresses a light oak character that layers on top of but doesn’t entirely mask green fruit which peeks through.
The wine is high in acidity and has a floral character that pairs with yeast and steely minerality.
