Puligny Montrachet 'Les Combettes' is one of Puligny's most northerly climats. It faces south-east. The soil is made up of clay-limestone which lends the characteristic taut saline expression to the wine. The soil contains a high proportion of pebbles which absorb the summer heat and help the grapes to ripen and reach maturity.The grapes for David's 'Les Combettes' come from 60 year old vines located in the middle of the slope, one of the best locations to ensure the vines receive maximum sunshine during the ripening season.
A beautifully elegant wine with a taut saline character, typical of Puligny Montrachet. The nose displays aromas of acacia, white flowers and lemon pith. The palate is marked by a rich toasted oak balanced by powerful citrus fruit flavours and a racy acidity which lends a lovely tension and energy mid-palate.
