Comtesse de Cherisey Puligny-Montrachet 2015

 This could have been ‘the bottle’ for me. Had I not have already fallen in love with wine. Prior to doing the WSET, I never really drank that much white wine. Now I am finding it my biggest discovery area.  It developed a lot throughout drinking. Immediately it was green fruits (apples, pears) and grassy, but with a definite minerality. This with a big body to it, floral notes (this white flowers / grapefruit thing that I keep finding and loving). On palate, it was soft and buttery, full bodied. Acidity there but gentle. Very long finish.  5 minutes later the green fruit fell away and apricot appeared mixed with the floral and grapefruit, structurally still similar.  With oysters, it highlighted saltiness and really brought out the green fruit and minerality again. With fleshy langoustines came the stone fruit. With smoked food came a flinty minerality.  Never had anything this good before.
