One of the more extroverted wines in the range, the 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Les Chalumeaux bursts from the glass with tons of personality. Succulent yellow peaches, apricots, spices and honey all blossom as the wine opens up. This is an especially rich, honeyed Puligny with an extroverted personality and a sense of structure with distinct Pinot leanings.

Ripe aromas of candied apple and flowers; more exotic than the foregoing wines. Sweet and silky in the mouth, offering a distinctly lacey quality to the flavors of white flowers, fresh almond, spices and minerals. Can't quite match the Charmes for finesse but the broad finish shows a subtle mineral underpinning.

In the same fashion as the Charmes there is a residual hint of post-bottling SO2 and I would make the same observation that it would be advisable to decant this if you're tempted to try a bottle right away. Otherwise the nose offers up cool green fruit, white flower and lemon-lime aromas that complement well the much more intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a markedly dry, linear and lingering finish. This is really quite fine, indeed it is an understated wine of finesse.
