The Girardin 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes adds musk melon to the predictable repertoire of peach and lemon offering an especially flatteringly creamy texture that - as with other of the best 2007s - by no means... The Girardin 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes adds musk melon to the predictable repertoire of peach and lemon offering an especially flatteringly creamy texture that - as with other of the best 2007s - by no means precludes vivacity or refreshment. Wafting floral perfume and underlying nut oil and malt richness contribute to the allure. But there is plenty of mineral depth here too - suggestive inter alia of oyster liquor and shrimp shell - that sets up a dynamic interaction with the wine's abundant fruit. This finishes with a tug on the salivary glands stomach and imagination alike. I would anticipate close to a decade's intrigue and enjoyment perhaps more. Girardin is keen to emphasize his being the sold proprietor with more than one parcel in Combettes as he believes the two he owns - at the northern and southern extremes of the site - offer unique complementarity. -David Schildknecht

An enticing combination of lemon apple hazelnut and vanilla tones. Fresh and focused yet with flesh to match its vibrant structure. Still a little lean on the finish yet long and full of toast and mineral. Best from 2012... An enticing combination of lemon apple hazelnut and vanilla tones. Fresh and focused yet with flesh to match its vibrant structure. Still a little lean on the finish yet long and full of toast and mineral. Best from 2012 through 2024. 100 cases imported. -BS
