-  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Combettes"​** (Jun. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized + 1 btl advanced but still drinkable. ​Not decanted. The good btls are youthful, but the elements are coming together beautifully. Just–ripe citrus in the nose carries over to the palate, which is complicated by a tantalizing interplay between refreshing acidity & sweet fruit. At least 1 btl delivered an astonishing surge of flavor in the finish with nut oils, preserved lemon, & salted caramel that was reminiscent of New World Chardonnay. From 2 lots of 6 purchased in Dec. 2013 & Jul. 2015 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

The good btls are half a notch down from the Combettes in terms of power & complexity, but all of the same elements are there: a lemony bouquet that's easy on the senses continues on to the palate where sweetness from the fruit provides exceptional balance.
