Puligny-Montrachet "Clos de la Pucelle" 2001 - Domaine Jean Chartron
A top white wine that will compete with the best white wines available. Chardonnay and Grechetto from hillside vineyards. A white wine with great structure. Intense straw yellow with alluring golden reflections, rich and elegant scents of orange blossom, banana, peach, pineapple and sweet, light notes of oak, vanilla and butter with delicate hints of coconut and white chocolate; it opens with refined flavour, fresh fruit and sapid, delicate citrus acidity; a long finish with excellent persistence. Proud of its Umbrian nature, Aurente has a strong and sunny temperament. The name recalls the preciousness of gold, both in its color and in the concentration of aromas and flavour. The Grechetto grape is fundamental to round out the Chardonnay, accentuating this wine’s Umbrian character.

Especially a great vintage for red Cote de Nuits. In white, the Chardonnays of the Cote d'Or are better than those of Chablis. Spring had beautiful sunny periods. After July cool and rainy summer has really said in August with sometimes heat wave and high sunshine. Violent storms of rain and hail caused locally heavy damage in the vineyards. Due to a refreshing and low rainfall in early September, it took all due care and discernment winemakers to choose the best harvest date; Vinification were long and regular for white wines, more technical for red wines to extract the best potential dyestuffs and tannins. The white wines are well balanced with good fruit concentration and a well-developed set off by sustained acidity. They are frank and purposes. The red wines are brightly colored and good intensity. Their structure is affirmed by firm tannins and good acidity level. They are fleshy and fruity is nice and expressive. The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin and Vosne-Romanee are sublime.
