Benoit Ente is the younger brother to Arnaud Ente, one of the greatest chardonnay producers in the world, but if he continues on his current trajectory he won’t be known as the “other” Ente for long.

While Benoit has been making wine since the late 80s, it wasn’t until 1997 that he was able to acquire his own vineyards. He inherited less than 4 hectares almost exclusively in Puligny‐Montrachet, as well as small plots in Chassagne‐Montrachet and Meursault.

Benoit is making wines of incredible purity and balance. Benoit’s wines are precise and focused with a tension to them that is not unlike a coiled spring waiting to unfurl. On the palate, his wines do just that and the tightly knit structure detected on the nose is revealed in layers of complexity.

Tasting Notes

87-89 Points Allen Meadows
Ultra-fresh aromas consist of bright green apple, lemon-lime and a pretty floral touch. There is again very good intensity to the dense middle weight flavors that also culminate in a clean, dry and balanced finale. This too is very good for what it is and absolutely worth your interest as it would make for a very fine house white.
