      "This too is agreeably cool with its fresh array of pear, apple and kiwi fruit aromas. There is once again fine volume to the solidly concentrated flavors where the mid-palate is supple to the point of being almost easy yet the finish tightens up enough to maintain the balance."

      Tasting notes by Corney & Barrow

      Bourgogne Blanc
      Customers will remember that this is a Villages Puligny by any other name, harvested from two plots 'Les Parties' and 'Les Houlières', a few yards south and west of Puligny Montrachet. As such it represents terrific value. Rich, firm gold colour. Gloriously ripe nose with an amzingly taut, even mineral perfume. The palate is rich, succulent and full, generous to the finish with good acidity. Drink in 2005.

      Apricots and yellow plums can be found in the aromatic and flavours profiles of the 2003 Bourgogne (white, 88-89). Rich, lush, medium-bodied, and seductive, this softly-textured wine is fruit-forward and enticing. Its long finish reveals flavors reminiscent of pear syrup. Enjoy it over the next 4 years.

      Bourgogne 1999 : This has quite a lean appley touch to it, though the malo is finished. Fullish and very classy on the palate. Very clean. Long. Stylish. Lovely long finish. Very poised. Fine for what it is.

      A rich, full wine, the Bourgogne 2002 has impressive spicy aromas. Fairly full-bodied and silky, the ensemble is dense, juicy, fresh and full, flooding the palate with spicy mineral and pear notes. For drinking within 3-4 years. 87-89.

      Tasting notes by Corney & Barrow

      Bourgogne Blanc
      Customers will remember that this is a Villages Puligny by any other name, harvested from two plots 'Les Parties' and 'Les Houlières', a few yards south and west of Puligny Montrachet. As such it represents terrific value. Rich, firm gold colour. Gloriously ripe nose with an amzingly taut, even mineral perfume. The palate is rich, succulent and full, generous to the finish with good acidity. Drink in 2005.

      Apricots and yellow plums can be found in the aromatic and flavours profiles of the 2003 Bourgogne (white, 88-89). Rich, lush, medium-bodied, and seductive, this softly-textured wine is fruit-forward and enticing. Its long finish reveals flavors reminiscent of pear syrup. Enjoy it over the next 4 years.

      Bourgogne
      Apricots and yellow plums can be found in the aromatic and flavours profiles of the 2003 Bourgogne (white, 88-89). Rich, lush, medium-bodied, and seductive, this softly-textured wine is fruit-forward and enticing. Its long finish reveals flavors reminiscent of pear syrup. Enjoy it over the next 4 years.

      Bourgogne 1999 : This has quite a lean appley touch to it, though the malo is finished. Fullish and very classy on the palate. Very clean. Long. Stylish. Lovely long finish. Very poised. Fine for what it is.

      Bourgogne 1999 : Ripe. Plenty of structure and depth. Good fruit and grip. Quite a full example. Good. From 2002.

      A rich, full wine, the Bourgogne 2002 has impressive spicy aromas. Fairly full-bodied and silky, the ensemble is dense, juicy, fresh and full, flooding the palate with spicy mineral and pear notes. For drinking within 3-4 years. 87-89.

      Tasting notes by Corney & Barrow

      Bourgogne Blanc
      Customers will remember that this is a Villages Puligny by any other name, harvested from two plots 'Les Parties' and 'Les Houlières', a few yards south and west of Puligny Montrachet. As such it represents terrific value. Rich, firm gold colour. Gloriously ripe nose with an amzingly taut, even mineral perfume. The palate is rich, succulent and full, generous to the finish with good acidity. Drink in 2005.
