Puligny-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes 2005, Vincent Girardin
Steely, very pale. Starts faint then hits almond and lemon notes. Becomes more honeyed and offers white tree flowers like hawthorn and cherry blossom. Silky texture, long tube of lemon fruit flavour, finesse and power with a dry finish. Excellent typicity. This is one of Vincent Giradin's negociant wines rather than his vineyard-owned domaine wines.
