"2011 Chavy-Chouet “ Les Enseigneres” Puligny-Montrachet. First bottle corked, quick chill of a second. Rich, to me more Meursault-ish than Puligny,"
That's interesting. I think of Meursault as more minerally and Puligny as rounder, maybe more unctuous, and well, generally richer. Obviously, there are different "house" styles, but has that not been your experience?

I'm sure your experience is broader than mine in other ways as well. Still, in my narrow window I, like you, place Chassagne in the middle but than reverse the poles. The Puligny that I have drunk most recently was from Girardin so that may explain some of it (and the Meursault has been from Matrot), but when I look, for example, at the write ups of the Boillot's (Henri) I have, the Meursault (Les Perrieres) goes in the minerally direction, while the Puligny (Clos de la Mouchere) bigger and bolder, but not some much stone. Other than Coche any other examples come to mind?
Obviously, I don't doubt your judgement, in fact appreciate it, but I am curious (and curious about what others have found as well).

For your "input." And Ryan, please be sure to let me know when you are coming to B-town, and I can try to arrange for us to try a few of these white burgs blind and see what we think. (Maybe, we can get some others--Sam, Mark, Julia, etc.--on board and do a blow out white burg tasting. I'd be happy to host.)
