Wine tasting note: 1996 Puligny Montrachet, Ch de Meursault Perrieres

1996 Puligny Montrachet, Ch de Meursault Perrieres

5th May 1998 GBP18 Burgundy Table White

Pale gold/straw.
Creamy, toasty nose with lots of spicy oak - complex and classy.
Still quite tight and too young with plenty of oak, citrus and bitter peel flavours and crisp acidity.
An outstanding wine that needs 4 or more years to find its balance.
