1996 Robert Ampeau & Fils Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes

$229.99
1996 Robert Ampeau & Fils Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes
Combettes is one of Ampeau's top wines but is his only white wine vineyard outside of his hometown of Meursault. This premier cru site in Puligny is one of the few that are on the border of Meursault, and the vineyard is in very close proximity to Meursault Charmes and Meursault Perrieres. This closeness to Meursault imbues these wines with similarities, and Combettes is considered a site that shows the aspects of Puligny and Meursault. The thin topsoil here with marl and clay is one of the optimal terroirs for Chardonnay, naturally making Combettes one of the top vineyards in Puligny.
The 1996 vintage from Ampeau is truly exceptional, and we have tried countless bottles from this vintage with much success. They are wonderful, classic examples of White Burgundy, and while the Amapeau has a large library of wines, the stock is dwindling. Each batch released sees a slight price increase over the previous one, and we always recommend grabbing some before the prices increase again. Similar wines from this vintage and vineyard are rare, and those that can be found come with pricing double, if not triple, Ampeau's version. We have a limited amount that has been released ex-Cellar, and this is an excellent buy when looking for white Burgundy with age and a nice CellarTracker Community Score of 92.9.
