"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru has an accomplished, mineral-driven bouquet with fine definition, touches of wet limestone percolating through the citrus fruit. The well-balanced palate delivers sappy acidity and good focus and depth, leading to a tensile, steely finish that shows off the pedigree of the vineyard. Recommended."
