The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru de la Mouchere, a monopole for Boillot, boasts a well-delineated fresh, oyster-shell bouquet. It is almost Loire-like personality, with subtle wilted-petal scents emerging in the glass. The palate has a crisp citric entry with a fine bead of acidity that lends this Puligny race and tension, while the leesy finish is surfeit with energy. This is a very fine Puligny with breeding and class. Drink now-2024.

Bright pale yellow. Soil-driven aromas of grapefruit, fresh dill and flinty minerality. Dense and brisk on entry, with outstanding grand cru intensity to the lemon and crushed stone flavors. Conveys a strong impression of silex . This boasts the sappiness of the best 2010s and finishes with outstanding stony, citric persistence. Like a slap in the face today, this wine demands at least several years of bottle aging, at which point it may merit an even higher score.
