Puligny Combettes, Domaine Dujac 2016
Here too there is a vaguely exotic quality to the even more floral-scented nose that reflects additional nuances of citrus and poached pear. There is a beguiling texture to the slightly denser if less obviously mineral-driven flavors that deliver slightly better depth and persistence on the balanced finale.

The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes was also touched by the frost more severely than the Folatières. The vines here are older than those located in Folatières, but I feel that the frost impacted more acutely apropos vigor, since it does not emit the same brightness. The palate is well balanced with an attractive orange zest and apricot opening, smooth and slightly waxy with a brisk, nicely detailed finish. It's a decent Puligny handicapped by the vintage.
