Wine SpectatorThis is ripe, brimming with peach, lime, floral and pastry aromas and flavors, backed by vivid structure. In the end, this is harmonious, offering a racy profile, with an essence of lime blossom and stone on the aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2032. 169 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Pucelles has quite a complex bouquet: minerals and gun flint at first, underneath hints of almond and honeysuckle lending more richness than the Puligny Les Combettes or the Folatières. There is just a slight reduction here, albeit in a positive sense, not masking any terroir. The palate is fresh and spicy on the entry, stem ginger and lemongrass driving this Pucelles along, flamboyant as you might expect from a warmer growing season, yet with impressive tension on the finish. Very fine - this may have the upper hand over the Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet.
