Reviews for 2006 Girardin, Vincent Puligny Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru

IWC 94
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, October 2007
Reticent but pure nose hints at stone fruits and flowers. Then fat and stuffed with very ripe fruit. Perhaps less refined in texture and less minerally than the Referts but this fruit bomb is classically dry and finishes... Reticent but pure nose hints at stone fruits and flowers. Then fat and stuffed with very ripe fruit. Perhaps less refined in texture and less minerally than the Referts but this fruit bomb is classically dry and finishes with outstanding persistence.

This is appealing for its elegant and savory character offering lemon toasted brioche and hazelnut flavors that mingle with the firm structure. Taut and minerally with fine potential. Has excellent length. Best from 2010... This is appealing for its elegant and savory character offering lemon toasted brioche and hazelnut flavors that mingle with the firm structure.

Girardin's 2006 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combottes (from two parcels at opposite ends of this elongated cru) is overtly citric and bright its lemon and pineapple somewhat overlain both on the nose and palate by resin lanolin and vanillin notes from the barrel. Fat and rich yet persistently juicy and fresh it finishes with purity and persistence as well as an understated note of chalk and ought to reward a half dozen years in bottle. I tasted a wide selection including all of the top crus of Vincent Girardin's truly vast output (from nearly fifty acres of vines plus a wide range of contracts as negociant) the wines having been pre-assembled from barrel for my tasting (hence the wide point spreads). Girardin is at pains to press very gently and he did only limited lees-stirring in 2006. He favors 20 30 and 40% new wood for his village premier cru and grand cru wines respectively. -David Schildknecht

A gently oaked nose sets off white floral citrus and soft spice aromas where the latter is also picked up by the nicely vibrant medium-bodied flavors that possess good detail and punch on the crisp and solidly detailed... A gently oaked nose sets off white floral citrus and soft spice aromas where the latter is also picked up by the nicely vibrant medium-bodied flavors that possess good detail and punch on the crisp and solidly detailed finish. Like many '06s this is an attractive effort as the ever-so-slightly sweet mid-palate is round and generous yet the dry finish retains a fine sense of punch. This should reward a few years in the cellar.

Pale golden yellow color. Very bright aromas of lemon quince and pine with some match-stick notes and a certain nuttiness. Burgundian yet very modern super clean and very bright on the palate. Each sip demands another... Pale golden yellow color. Very bright aromas of lemon quince and pine with some match-stick notes and a certain nuttiness. Burgundian yet very modern super clean and very bright on the palate. Each sip demands another. Subtle oak frames the pure citrus fruit flavors nicely. The finish is long dry and precise. Excellent example of Combettes.
