Good full yellow-straw color. Musky ripe peach, crushed stone and a whiff of truffle on the rather saline nose. Rich and seamless, with lovely generosity of texture to the flavors of ripe peach and salted butter. Not particularly high-pitched but has sound acidity for all its fat. Best today on the tactile, rising, very long finish.

Tasted blind in Hong Kong, this example of the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère 2011 from Henri Boillot did not quite ring as many bells as the previous bottle. Compared to the Meursault ’11 from Ente, it is clearly more exotic on the nose with a petrol note that I did not notice before. The palate is rich, intense and quite powerful with piercing acidity and a slight reduction on the finish. I actually think there are better bottles of this out there.
Lively and with real acidity and density. Lots of fun! This is clearly a magic site. The golden ticket… smoky, rich, voluptuous…
