Arnaud Ente is going on 50 years young and very lucky. He was born into a Puligny family. He landed a job with Coche Dury. He then married into a Meursault family with an incredible collection of old vines. He has been farming them and making the wines ever since.

The popular cliché is to say the he is "the new Coche". In a word, he is not - nobody is. Like all great growers he has developed his own unique style which offers both opulence and richness and precise focused linear dynamic tension. There are wonderful untranslatable French wine tasting words that come to mind, like "nervoisité" and "energie terrible".

Arnaud Ente adores Riesling and you can tell drinking his wines. He is not a fan of new oak flavors and uses a remarkable number of older barrels, and even some larger neutral barrels (demi-muids and foudres). Since about 2002 he's had no problems with premature oxidation -- those wax capsules and lessons learned from Coche really help!

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 91
"A slightly riper yet still notably fresh array consists of pear liqueur-like aromas where additional breadth is present in the form of apple, roasted nuts and acacia blossom. There is more volume and richness to the medium weight flavors that possess a sappy mouth feel thanks to the copious level of dry extract, all wrapped in a slightly more complex finish that is both clean and dry. This very rich effort will easily be approachable young but once again, should have no trouble aging." -Allen Meadows

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Bright, pale yellow. Ripe, fruity aromas of yellow peach, orange juice and lemon. Sweet and opulent but with good inner-mouth tension; a seductive fruit bomb of a Meursault with a seamless texture. Round, broad and mouthfilling without heaviness, and considerably riper and larger-scaled than the basic village offering." -Vinous

"Some strong minerality on the nose. Then richness on the palate. Very tense and lively. That menthol note again. Magic winemaking! Or maybe magic vine growing!"
