The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon has a lively nose with some lovely slate-like aromas drifting from the glass, followed by blackcurrant leaf and citrus lemon. The palate is well balanced with a light, slightly oily texture, moderate acidity, building in power toward the finish that never quite slips into fifth gear, at least not at this stage.

Tasting note: Enough reduction is present to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is a similar sense of energy to the slightly rounder and softer medium-bodied flavors that aren't quite as mineral-driven or complex but do offer fine persistence on the balanced finish. This should be approachable young if desired.
