(2014 Vintage) The nose is really fine and detailed, showing great freshness and pure stone fruits along with some green apple and white flower. The palate is driven by a beautiful fresh acidity and delivers a texture driven and very persistent finish.
Robert Parker(2014 Vintage) The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchere has a taut and linear, but intense bouquet with attractive apple blossom, flint and orange zest aromas that open with a sense of confidence in the glass. The palate is well balanced with quite a piercing citric entry. There is very good weight in the mouth here, feisty and spicy with a dab of fresh ginger perking up the finish. Give this a couple of years and you should have a fine Puligny-Montrachet.

International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Rating: 91-94 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 127, July/August 2006 (these very old vines produced 38 hectoliters per hectare in 2005) Malic aroma of spiced apple. Then wonderfully tactile and sweet in the mouth, with an apricotty ripeness verging on exotic. And yet this conveys an impression of great solidity without any heaviness. This has 4.5 grams of acidity and 13.7% alcohol. Should be a knockout.
