A very ripe yellow fruit and floral infused nose complements to perfection the rich, full-bodied and powerful flavors that also possess an opulent mid-palate, all wrapped in a palate staining and seductively textured finish. This is a stylish ’09 with plenty of palate coating dry extract that imparts a suave mouth feel yet there is enough supporting acidity such that this avoids any sense of heaviness.

The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet Combettes (from the Meursault side) comes across as quite closed at first. This is rather inward, but then begins to blossom in the glass over time. Still, this is relatively taut style for the year, with plenty of energy and drive. I can see the Combettes meriting a higher score if it fleshes out with further bottle age.
