50% Off: BH92 "Outstanding" 1er Cru Puligny, In-Stock - 01/31/2018 - White Burgundy

Burgundy drinkers rejoice! Today’s feature is a classic premier cru white from Bruno Colin at a price that defies logic. The next lowest price we were able to find for the 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Truffière" was $110, and we have it for less than half that at a mere $49.99! This is ridiculously low for a wine of the caliber and pedigree, making this a unique opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. We’ve espoused the many virtues of Bruno Colin before. From his unwavering commitment to reflecting Burgundy’s unique terroir to his meticulous efforts in the cellar, few craft wines with such dedication and diligence. These efforts have not gone unnoticed, as the critics adored this 2013 calling it “wonderfully complex” and garnering not one, but two 92-point scores. A classic Puligny through and through the "Truffière" is surreptitiously complex with a coy introduction that soon leads to a cascade of aromas, flavors, and textures. This is what Chardonnay is all about: concentration and power framed by elegance and finesse. As you might expect, deals this sharp are never around for long and we fully expect this 2013 to move at a fast clip. Feel free to pop the cork on this beauty now or cellar for another 5 to 10 years, either way you’ll be glad you picked this outstanding value up.

2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Truffière" (Elsewhere $100) ($49.99)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A reticent but wonderfully complex nose is comprised by distinctly cool acacia blossom, white peach, pear and green apple hints. There is lovely sense of underlying tension to the elegantly textured and notably mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that serves to coat the palate as well as buffer the moderately firm acidity supporting the saline, long and well-balanced finale. Good juice. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (06/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Petrol and baking spice aromas lead off, followed by flavors of spiced apple and lemon. Intense, with tannins on the finish giving this white a tactile impression. (BS)" (06/2016)

91 points Vinous: "Restrained aromas of orchard fruits, orange peel, acacia blossom and stone. Suppler than the Garenne, showing a hint of pineapple, but also quite dry and tight. Will this expand in the bottle? An impression of saline extract suggests that it will. (ST) 91+" (09/2015)
