2014 Domaine Vincent Dureuil Puligny Montrachet 'Champs Gains' 1er Cru

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

Vincent Dureuil's vines in Puligny's "Champs Gains" were planted in 1974, and accordingly this wine brims with minerality and old-vine concentration. Lemon butter, tarragon, and toasty lees, combined with a firm crossbeam of acidity make this one ageworthy and totally opulent bottle of Chardonnay.

The walls of the Dureuil (doo-roy) cellar look like something out of a B-grade horror movie, as if someone has sprayed them down with fake cobwebs. It's frigid, damp, musty and - truth be told - a little creepy. The ancient stone cavern seems like a science experiment gone wrong, and yet it echoes one of the great mysteries of Burgundy: how such precise, pure, focused white wines can come to life in such an environment.

Vincent Dureuil left us baffled yet again at this seemingly impossible dichotomy, and his lineup was one of the true highlights of last spring's buying trip. We literally bought every bottle we were offered, something we have rarely ever done. Alas, despite our offer to completely clean out his cellar, we didn't get nearly as much as we were prepared to secure. These are quite simply among the most compelling and delicious Chardonnays we tried in all of Burgundy. To miss them would be a mistake.
