But this was the star of the show – maybe not £88 great, but really showed its class. Fennel herb, celery, cream, chalky, lees, with creamy new (50%) French oak complexity. Despite youth, already complex. Fuller body and more dense than either Puligny. Creamy, citrus peel fruit, with subtle oak and chalky mineral complexity. Beautiful integration of all parts, and holding power tightly. Long. Lovely.
