Domaine Paul Pernot, Bourgogne Blanc (Burgundy, France) Chardonnay 2017

($26):  Domaine Paul Pernot, one of the leaders in Puligny-Montrachet, seemingly can do no wrong with their white wines.  Year in and year out, my notes indicate you can buy any of his white wines and be happy.  Take this Bourgogne Blanc, which comes exclusively from Chardonnay grown in plots located just outside the delineated area of Puligny-Montrachet.  Delicate with hints of white flowers, it has charm and substance.  Not the opulence of New World Chardonnay, Pernot’s Bourgogne Blanc has a lightness that belies its persistence and depth.
