Philippe Pacalet, Puligny Montrachet 2011

The Puligny Montrchet village 2011 is fulfilling the promise it showed from cask. In the nose white orchard fruits with a stony puligny minerality and a citrus twist. On the palate rich and quite luch yellow fruit with a good transparancy and a fine mineralic backbone. A lovely inner balance – a fresh and quite crisp acidity – but I’m a bit surpriced by the richness of the fruit. The fruit an the acidity is however in perfect balance – making it very approachable. The 2011s are pretty, but don’t seem to have the weight of the 2010s, although the 2010s really need time to resolve. No doubt the 2010s will prevail … but the 2011s will provide lots of pleasure in the meantime.
