*9W* 2019 Joseph Faiveley "La Garenne" 1er Cru Puligny Montrachet (Burgundy, FR)

Weight: 9W

Varietal: Chardonnay

Region: Puligny Montrachet, Burgundy, France

2019 was a challenging year in Burgundy, but in the hands of a capable, historic winemaking family like the Faiveleys (currently on their 8th generation), this wine is undoubtedly a fantastic addition to the cellar. Showing power on the nose & complexity on the palate, this white Burgundy was aged for 18 months in 45% new oak, and offers aromas of baked yellow pear, Meyer lemon, toasty tarte tatin, and a taut, minerally palate. Utterly compelling!
