"The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Sous le Puits has a very intense nose despite a touch of reduction, the 30% new oak lending heft to the citrus scents mixed with dried yellow flowers. The palate is fresh and vibrant, with a little creaminess in texture imparted by the oak, hints of nutmeg and spices furnishing the lively and energetic finish. This is very enticing, though I would afford it a couple of years in bottle once released. "
