A highly attractive melange of citrus flowers and white stone fruits dazzles the palate as the 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Combettes shows off its striking personality. The Combettes impresses for its crystalline purity and sheer detail. It is one of the most overly mineral driven wines in the lineup. The energy and tension in the glass is pure 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2016+.

(BH91-94 points) This is also quite ripe in fact the mostly yellow orchard fruit aromas play right on the edge of being exotic while combining with the usual floral pear and discreet spice nuances. There is outstanding concentration to the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that display solid power and punch before concluding in a mouth coating and almost painfully intense finish that offers superb persistence.

Reticent nose hints at minerals and resiny aromatic oils. Much less fruity and expressive today than the Folatieries but with excellent cut to its reserved pineapple and mineral flavors. Has the definition and spine for a long life in bottle. Not at all a Meursault style of Combettes; in fact this is tight and strict today. 93+
