Better than the last

Much better than the last bottle of white Burgundy I had to fight my way through.

Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru La Garenne 2002, Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet

The nose is very full, concentrated with a lot of floral character. There is something almost herbal about the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated, again really floral. Nice and ripe but in no way hot; restrained, if anything. The finish is really long, with plenty of acidity and minerality. This is a fine, balanced and concentrated bottle of interesting white Burgundy. Quite lovely, really.
