Dom Larue Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Garennes 2008 Dom Larue Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Garennes 2008

We drank this at our January 2017 staff dinner.  The wines before and after it were far grander, but I thought it would be fun to pop this and see what time had done.  For every single staff member and guest at the table that evening, this was the wine of the night.  Until a few days ago, I wrongly assumed there was no more to be had.

But there is, and the wine is damn fine.  Les Garennes is high on the Puligny hill, a site that gives cool, restrained, balanced wines that perfectly fit Didier’s restrained, balanced, winemaking style.  At age 9, this is all about pure golden apple fruit, lemon citrus lift, toasted hazelnut complexity, and crushed rock minerality.  It starts with intense focus, expands on your palate with generous breadth, and than snaps into mouthwatering precision on the finish where French butter, ripe apple, fresh mint, and crushed chalk flavors sail on and on.  A magnificent match for shellfish, fried foods, or anything with a good dose of herb.
