94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Boillot speculates that flint is the efficacious geological element that renders his estate's 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Perrieres so distinctive. Peach and quince make for an effusively ripe, suggestively sweet aroma complimented by peony perfume. Given such a dramatic opening, one might expect a massive onslaught of sheer ripeness on the palate, but while silken-textured and generously expansive, this displays a buoyancy and almost levitating, ethereal lightness of touch, as well as a vibratory interaction of citrus, ripe pit fruit, and liquid floral perfume on the finish. The mineral side of matters vinous - notwithstanding the site's name - is very much sublimated. This epitome of vintage polish, elegance, energy, and luscious refreshment should be worth following for at least half a dozen years. There are 9 barrels of it, and its vines - representing a selection massale from the estate's Clos de la Mouchere - are, amazingly, only in their third year of production. (12/2009)"
