Domaine Larue, Puligny-Montrachet 1er, La Garenne, Bourgogne, France, 2016
The grapes come from a vineyard high above the hamlet of Blagny, where there are only thirty centimeters between the limestone soil and the bedrock. Think about that for a moment.
Thirty measly centimeters of pebbly earth before those hardy vines anchor themselves in whatever mineral-rich cracks and crevices they come across, gleaning scarce nutrients and suffering through droughts to produce highly concentrated grapes with amazing acidity and verve. You’ll find all the purity and energy for which Larue’s wines are known, plus the depth and richness typical of Puligny. – Emily Spillman
