Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes – 2010

Vinous
94 Points

The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru has just a touch of reduction on the nose, but far less than Fichet’s Les Referts tasted alongside, thus allowing the mineralité to show through, along with hints of custard creams and fresh figs in the background. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, offering citrus fruit mixed with black currant leaf and crushed stone, and delivering real tension and penetration toward the finish. This is impressive. Tasted at Sarah Marsh’s 2010 white burgundy tasting in London.

“There is outstanding concentration to the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that display solid power and punch before concluding in a mouth coating and…intense finish that offers superb persistence.”

“With its structured, mineral character, this is a serious, age worthy wine. It has a sense of coiled power and steel and a dense, complex texture that brings out both its ripe, pure fruit character and its intensity.”

“…Reticent nose hints at minerals and resiny aromatic oils. Much less fruity and expressive today than the Folatieries, but with excellent cut to its reserved pineapple and mineral flavors. Not at all a Meursault style of Combettes…”
