Chateau de Puligny Montrachet, NSG Clos des Grandes Vignes 2009

The Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos des Grades Vignes from Chateau de Puligny Montrachet is a lovely effort – from this somewhat overlooked 1er cru. In the bouquet fine red fruit with cherries, raspberries and a lovely core of sweet strawberries – some slightly floral and reduced notes – but a lovely nose. On the palate fine quite airy fruit for a 2009. Good midpalate concentration, with quite a tannic grip and a fine core of delicate sweet fruit. The finish is long and quite intense offering good minerality. A very good and attractive Nuits-Saint-Georges with a fine expression of terroir. Looking forward to see what Louis-Michel Liger-Belair can make from this vineyard – from the 2012 vintage.
