Just below Paupillot (east) and similarly just north of the township of Puligny Montrachet on the left hand side as one drives from Meursault. High toned and what seems to be a theme with all the 2017s, a beautiful harmony between completely open fruit, tension and sea spray. The palate, while sharing the above characters has an overwhelming amount of unctuous fruit that coats the entirety of the palate. Lovely gripe and size but not the most fine-tuned in the stable. -Jono Hersey, FWC From old vines that tend to produce small, shot berries, the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Derrière La Velle unfurls in the glass with aromas of honeyed citrus, crisp green apple, white flowers and almond paste. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and chewy, with good concentration and extract. Broad-shouldered and muscular, it's the most rustic wine in the cellar but displays plenty of substance. 89-91 points. William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
