Puligny-Montrachet "Les Levrons" 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur

This Puligny, tasted at the Bitouzet-Prieur cellar, was utterly charming from the outset. An expressive nose of pêche de vigne (a type of peach with higher acidity than a normal sweet peach). This wine immediately brings a smile of pleasure. Really rich, sweet white strawberry, white peach, broad and mouth-filling with good underlying acidity and minerality. Half of the vines are 50 years old and half are about 11 years old which explains the rich fruit and the freshness. Well made and something that every lady would enjoy.
