Domaine Dujac Puligny Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru Blanc 2018
This 2018 Puligny Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru from Domaine Dujac displays a rich golden hue and a nose filled with fresh citrus and orchard fruit notes. Delicate touches of white flowers, crushed stones, and subtle oak add depth and complexity to the aroma. On the palate, this wine is well-rounded, offering a harmonious balance between vibrant acidity and a creamy texture. The lingering finish leaves you with hints of buttery toast and mineral undertones. This wine is a delightful expression of the unique terroir of Puligny Montrachet.
Vineyard notes - Situated on the slope to the north of the village of Puligny-Montrachet, the premier cru Les Combettes neighbours the appellation of Meursault. The altitude varies from 246 to 264 meters, with an average gradient of 9% and the parcel is facing southeast. The soil contains angular stones of light-coloured limestone. The soil is 50 centimeters thick and is rich in silt, sand and clay. The Dujac parcel lies on the “Pierre de Chassagne,” or “Stone of Chassagne,” a very light and hard limestone that has been used for centuries as a stone for building as well as for a marble quarry in the neighbouring village of Chassagne-Montrachet.
