Tasting Notes

Passerillage-inflected aromas of orange oil, peach, barley sugar, apricot and freshly baked bread preface the 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Garenne (Duc de Magenta), a medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy wine that's ample and enveloping, with lively acids and a long, saline finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2022

Noticeably yellower, though there is considerable elegance in the vineyard. There is a gorgeous sensuality to this, a cashmere texture and several waves of flavour, and a lovely persistent finish with just a faint acidity. Tasted: November 2021

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, November 2021

Pale lemon colour. Fine, high toned and floral on the nose. The palate is tangy with peach fruit and smoky with seductive oak spice. There is a piercing, zippy acidity to cut through the fleshy fruit and smoky oak. A glossy, crowd-pleasing sheen builds to the finish, which is long and layered with stone fruit.
