Vincent Girardin Puligny-Montrachet Vieille Vignes, 2008

pulignyA wine beyond my budget but for which we had the good fortune to sample recently.  You can get it easily (unlike so many wonderful Burgundies).  BC Liquor has it for around $60 and Crosarial in the Globe gave the 09 a very good review; it sells in YYZ for just over $50.

 

For purists I would highly, highly recommend it.  A wonderful wine with a steely repose and a bitter toasty nose with an elegant butterscotch finish.  An ultimate go-with for salmon.  Or, for that matter, anyone with pockets deep enough for the good stuff.

 

Price: Depends on where you live in Canada, but $59 in BC.

 

Market Liquidity: On my Christmas list.
