P&L Borgeot Puligny-Montrachet Les Meix 2017
We’re getting dead-serious and intense today (at great pricing, of course, that will never change) with an awesome bottle of Puligny-Montrachet we discovered on our last trip to France. White Burgundy in general is a near-never occurrence here at LB, mostly due to the exceedingly small quantities of these great wines being made, but this one just landed in our Napa warehouse --- so fresh, so palate-tingling...oh BABY! So we are STOKED today --- wow wow WOW!!

AHH!! Forget it! So, a few things -- 1- Terrific vintage. 2017 is VERY small in quantity, but of very fine quality. 2 -- This is single-vineyard Puligny-Montrachet from the Les Meix vineyard, located just below the famed premier cru “Les Pucelles”. The vines are 50+ years old! 3- The Borgeot family has been making wine since 1903, this is the fourth generation of winemakers, in the village of Remigny, and they farm organically. 4- The Price!
Ah, but let us regale you on the WINE, the glorious wine (it is, after all, sitting on our desk next to a breakfast burrito). It’s SO fun to drink and describe white Burg...this wine hits you with crushed rocks, tightly wound citrus fruit, peach pit, roasted nuts on the nose --- in your mouth, it’s like a bolt of electric current cutting through peaches, lemon and grapefruit flavors, with more toasted nuts and flowers, honey and nutmeg swinging in on the finish. Wonderful, lovely, refreshing and so CLEAN and pure. Excellent!! Excellent price --- for single-vineyard Puligny?? C’mon!!
Needless to say, there is very little -- PLEASE jump on it quick! Special occasion Chardonnay from one of the best places on earth to grow it!
