Boillot's estate 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles delivers the vibratory interplay of floral, mineral, and fruit elements that one hopes for from this great site in its vintage. Reminiscent of the Perrieres in aromas of peach and quince, here allied to iris and suggestions of high-toned herbal and floral distillates, this lights up the palate, with citrus and hints of nettle and white pepper serving for an almost electric invigoration. Yet, ample glycerin makes for a flattering texture and ameliorates any tendency toward sharpness. It should perform beautifully over the coming decade, doubtless gaining richness in the process.

This too carries a background hint of wood on the honeysuckle, spice and lemony nose that displays excellent freshness that continues onto the textured, satiny and lightly mineral suffused flavors that finish with a bone dry finale. This is wine that oozes class and refinement. Highly recommended.
