Francois and Denis Clair Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Garenne" 2015

85.00

For generations the Clair family has farmed various parcels in Burgundy but sold their fruit to necogiants. That changed in 1986 when Denis Clair set up the family’s own domaine, with the actual winery set up in his wife’s hometown of Saint Aubin. Their son Jon-Baptiste has joined the endeavor and they now own about 15 hectares. This is a delicious, textbook example of Puligny-Montrachet, with wonderful freshness on the nose with notes of white flowers and sea spray. This exemplary 1er cru site imparts vivid minerality onto the rich, complex palate alongside lovely citrus and white peach notes. Delicious now but sure to evolve and improve over the next several years.
