Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot, Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru 2002

J.M. Boillot Puligny Combettes 2002 #3

Pellucid canary yellow.  A nose of silk, white flowers and fragrance.  Discreet honeysuckle wrapped in a fine canopy of mint and basil verdancy.  A celestial ripeness and purity, with a mineral core that refracts through the fruit like sunlight off steel: white peach, asian pear, quince.  For a wine so gossamer in demeanor this has amplitude, scale and richness.  Pixelated, hazelnut and limestone finish.  The opposite of facile; a classic Combettes.  This is arriving at its apogee; à point.  Now – 2018.
