A remarkably fresh little number

Much is talked about premature oxidation of white Burgundy, this doesn’t suffer from that in the slightest.

Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Clos de la Mouchere 2001, Jean Boillot

A lovely, nutty, buttery nose with nice ripe lemon fruit and a good mineral tang. This smells fresh and lovely, pretty god-damned complex too. The nose is a sleek charmer of pronounced beauty. The palate is very fresh, with concentrated flavours, good acidity, nice fruit and a really satisfying mineral character on the finish. It has weight and density as well, but these don’t detract from its racy excitement. The finish is just great, nice and long with really detailed flavours of fruit and minerality. This could easily age for longer, but is quite a bundle full of joy now. Excellent stuff.
