White wine. Burgundy, France. Biodynamic. 100% Chardonnay. "The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet “Rue Rousseau” from Philippe Chavy is made from a tiny parcel of vines planted in 1955, which lie just below Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. The 2017 Rue Rousseau is a lovely wine, with its complex bouquet wafting from the glass in a blend of white peach, delicious apple, a touch of crème patissière, chalky soil tones, almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and still nicely youthful in personality, with a fine core of old vine fruit, lovely soil signature, zesty acids and fine focus and grip on the nascently complex finish. This could do with a few years to allow its complexity to fully blossom, but it may not be all that easy to keep one’s hands off while waiting for it to properly open up with bottle age!" — 90+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #85 (January/February 2020)
