The micro-production wines of brothers Benoit and Arnaud Ente (Arnaud worked at Coche-Dury and now produces some of Meursault’s finest wines under his own label) quietly disappear into the cellars of knowing collectors around the world each year. Today, we are showcasing Benoit, whose profoundly complex style of Puligny shows an immense concentration so rarely witnessed.
His wines convey terroir and have a vibrant energy that electrifies the palate from start to finish (a style compared to Pierre Yves-Colin Morey, Roulot and Coche-Dury). If you examine a map of Puligny, you’ll see the prestigious company surrounding the plot of “Clos de la Truffière”: “Les Folatières,” “Champ Gain,” “La Garenne”…essentially, some of the finest Premier Cru sites Puligny- Montrachet can offer. If you’re a lover of serious white Burgundy with precision and an advocate for passionate winemakers, this should certainly be a part of your collection, big or small. It’s rare, classic, impeccable; a true collector’s item. Do yourself a favor and introduce yourself to Benoit Ente (if you’re already a fan, you’ve likely proceeded to the cart already). Due to extremely small quantities we are only able to offer up to 3 bottles per customer until it sells out. (Note: Please make sure to pay attention to the serving instructions because this wine needs a few hours of air before consuming for best results).
