Domaine Sylvain Langoureau Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Garenne” 2018

Domaine Sylvain Langoureau, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, La Garenne 2019

RRP £51.99 (2018)

This domaine has a range of excellent Saint Aubin, but in 2019 I especially liked this Puligny from a parcel high on the slope with thin top soil. With a vibrant attack, this pierces the palate. It has an appetising sweet, sour/savoury contrast and with this comes harmony. The ripe fruit puckers on an almost tannic edge and a marked racy finish. As it opens, there’s a touch of glossy fruit. Yum.
