A discreet first nose with saline notes and which reveals all its amplitude and concentration on the palate with aromas of white flowers. The selection of vines for this cuvée makes it possible to produce a more aristocratic white Burgundy, more tense and serious in intensity, more Puligny!
Food pairings
It goes wonderfully with a salmon blanquette, a paella or zucchini pasta.


"Largely from five domaine vineyards near Puligny, all aged in barrel. Deliciously rich and juicy on the attack. A straight citrus palate underpinned with mineral tension. Spot-on for a Puligny-style
Bourgogne. Top-notch.

"Pale colour, rather discreet nose at the moment but suggesting potential. A little bit of reduction here, but to a beneficial degree, and with a great deal more weight behind. Very persistent. This is an excellent Oncle Vincent, a really big step up this year.
