The 2012 Puligny-Montrachet Les Charmes comes from Alain’s 0.66-hectare parcel of around 30-year-old vines in the lieu-dit adjacent to the Meursault Charmes. It has a tightly wound bouquet that like the village cru, requires a few minutes to really get going but belatedly offers up scents of apple blossom and a whiff of lavender. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. This is a languid Puligny, one that is well-balanced and sedate, yet fresh and quite sensual in the mouth. It is not the most complicated Puligny you will find, but I am sure it will be enjoyable in the first 8-10 years after bottling.
