Distinctive, concentrated fresh fruit and vanilla aromas carry on to the palate and culminate in a persistent, lingering finish. Puligny produces wines with greater firmness and depth than those of Meursault, and greater refinement and delicacy than those of Chassagne. An excellent companion to fish, shellfish, poultry and cheeses.

(this was the first 2016 village wine bottled by Jadot, in January of this year; production was nearly normal at about 100 barrels): Bright, pale yellow. Very pure aromas and flavors of white peach and white flowers with a touch of stone. A bit streamlined on the palate but pure and energetic, displaying noteworthy precision and a light touch. Nicely balanced village wine with very good finishing lift. I prefer this rather graceful wine to Jadot's village Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet bottlings in 2016 as it shows little evidence of frost.

The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet Villages has a simple, light but attractive bouquet with limestone and green apple scents wafting from the glass. The palate is balanced with quite a rich and generous opening, more fatness here than I was expecting from a village cru, but with a decent white chocolate-tinged finish. Fine.
