    ($115) Pale color. Subtle aromas of white peach and flower blossom. Sweet, lush and silky, with lovely cut. Nicely full in the mouth but at the same time elegant and penetrating. Really spreads out and lingers on the palate.

    Good acidity and real spine. Thoroughly exciting wine that pierces the palate. Not nearly ready and with very slightly obvious alcohol on the finish but all the elements are there for a great and glorious future.

    Tasted side by side with the '99 Bienvenues. As good as the '99 is, it became clear that the 2000 is just a hair better with slightly fresher and more elegant honeysuckle, citrus and white flower aromas that lead to detailed, precise and wonderfully pure medium full flavors that possess postively gorgeous mouth feel and a classy, textured and long finish. This is a really impressive effort that offers near perfect balance and while it's not really a powerful wine, it doesn't lack for drive. I have raised my score slightly though the suggested drinking window remains unchanged, which is to say that this is approaching its peak drinking window though it should hold here for another decade.

    Very wild nose took me by surprise -- much more fresh, broad and adventuresome than my last sample. Strong mineral base of the vintage. Delectable, poised despite rich fruit, and just hitting its stride.

Based in Puligny-Montrachet, Paul Pernot and his sons Paul and Michel occupy a very important and respected position in Burgundy. They are the largest owners of the premier cru vineyard "les Folatieres" and have made their name with serious, mineral-driven wines that engender the graceful blossoming of top-tier white Burgundy. These wines are focused and precise with plenty of acidity and layered fruit aspects. What is so notable about these wines is how in the beginning they are restrained and tight, but with a bit of subtle coaxing they dance across the palate, showcasing vibrant mineral, citrus and white spice notes. Pernot also produces several reds from appellations including Bourgogne, Beaune, Pommard, Santenay, and Volnay.
