In a nutshell:
Elegant, layered and vibrant Côte de Beaune white Burgundy.
Patrick Miolane's estate is based in the neighbouring village of Saint-Aubin, but from his small parcel of vines in Puligny-Montrachet he produces a very stylish wine indeed. The fruit is from vines over half a century old and which have an excellent mineral structure and real vibrancy of flavour. Half of the wine is matured in tank and half in oak barrels, 20% of which are new. The aromas that hit you are of ripe apples and pears while on the palate, balanced against the tangy crispness, it's round, generous and full with a touch of delicacy that lingers long right up to the finish.
When to drink:
A wine very light on its feet, but with all the classic Puligny character. Fillet of sea bass, or similar is just the ticket here.
