Puligny Montrachet Vieilles Vignes AOC 2022, Jean-Philippe Marchand
Extraordinary white Burgundy from Jean-Philippe Marchand in the heart of the Cote d'Or. Small production, old vines and a wine to remember. Drinking well now but has plenty of cellar life. The ideal gift for wine lovers.
Jean-Philippe Marchand’s holds firm in his philosophy to respect the authenticity of each terroir, so they can flourish and express their true character. The vineyards are ploughed and nourished with organic fertiliser and every care is given to the the soil quality, the health of the vine stock, vegetal development and the yield of the grapes. The grapes are grown in small yields on 50 year old vines harvested by hand then laid to ferment in stainless steel vats before moving to oak barrels.
Magnificent, complex and subtle where flavours of hazelnut, almond, honey, lemon and vanilla combine in a symphony on the palate. Soft but with beautiful acidity and a deliciously long finish.
