A textbook Pucelles nose of honeysuckle and citrus is trimmed in a discreet application of oak and a trace of exotic fruit, neither of which continue over to the delicious, round and quite generous medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth on the focused and unusually powerful finish. There is an ample amount of underlying tension that adds relief to the otherwise densely concentrated dry exact. This is quite simply terrific and while there is good power, the ’08 Pucelles remains a wine of finesse. *Outstanding*

Broad and powerful, with a firm underlying structure that allows the lemon, toast and baking spices to take center stage, followed by an excellent finish. Nonetheless, this is balanced toward the structure now, needing time to reveal its full potential.
