2017 Domaine Jean Pascal et Fils Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres$59.99
The Domaine Jean Pascal’s 2017 Bourgogne Blanc was excellent, and we sold a good amount of it and have had some great customer feedback. We just had the chance to taste their Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres and are happy to say this wine is a beauty too. Yann Morvan runs the Domaine, and his wife Alexandra is the head winemaker. They farm organically, limit yields, use native yeasts, and let the hard work in the vineyard be reflected in the wines. The Puligny Ensigneeres vineyard has a grand location just below Batard and Bienvenue Batard Montrachet. The vines in their Les Enseignres vineyard are about 45 years old, and the wine is so elegant, refined, and complex you would think it was a top level premier cru! This is a dynamite bottle that is just coming it's own and should drink incredibly well for the next decade or so. A real overachiever for the price and we think the Wine Spectators review below is spot on for this one!
Wine Spectator 93 pts! Aromas of lime blossom and yuzu give way to lemon, apple and subtle oak spice flavors in this racy white. Balanced and precise, with a lingering, mineral- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2028.
