TN: 2007 Château de Puligny-Montrachet Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos des Grandes Vignes

  • 2007 Château de Puligny-Montrachet Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos des Grandes Vignes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru (12/27/2012)
    Poured glasses at place settings around 30 min before dinner. The nose showed some perfumed florals & strawberries at first, with some air, spicy oaky aromatics blended in. Medium bodied, with fleshy bing cherries & tart red berries. Very fruity & quite tart. Crunchy, not quite angular texture, but highly acidic & dry. Subtle tannins show themselves which adds a bit of intensity here. Good dryness on the finish, along with a lingering tartness.

I knew nothing about this wine, recommended by a retailer and it was a nice drink. We replaced a corked bottle of Barbaresco with this, and were serving a somewhat fatty leg of lamb, so a bit more tannin would have been good with the meal, but this was spicy enough to play off the gaminess of the meat quite well.

Big fan of these wines, owned by the de Montille family. Try the whites. Alix de Montille is “married” to Jean Marc Roulot, and apparently helps to some degree (probably not small either) with the wines. Etienne has told me Dominique Lafon has helped too, just never found out with what or how much.

Nice! I saw this wine on PC’s website and thought about buying some.
I really enjoyed it when it was under Moillard’s stewardship.

I’ve only had a handful of Moillard’s that I loved, mostly 80s and the 1990, any one year in particular I should look out for?

These wines do seem to take forever.

Recently, I’ve had luck with the '98 Malconsorts. Representative of the year and domaine - dark, powerful, and very Malconsorts. But, may not be best until year 20 and will probably drink for 10 more after that. A few years back, I had a solid '97 Chambertin, which might say something about the sturdiness of their wines.

Have a '93 Beze I’ve been holding and may open it up this coming year. I’ll post a note when I do.

Thanks for the info guys. This was a nice bottle, not surprising that so many talented people had a hand in it.
