Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, December 2019

Les Referts is generally a rather powerful and muscular style of Puligny, however this 2018 from the Boillots is relatively delicate with an appealing mineral, floral side. Hints of cherry blossom are complemented by a touch of freshly buttered toast on the finish.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

Jean-Marc and his children Lydie and Benjamin consistently make some of the most appealing and forward drinking wines from their significant holdings across Burgundy. Their range of Puligny Montrachet premiers crus shows impressive individual distinction. Jean-Marc’s family has a long and distinguished history in Burgundy. His grandfather was Etienne Sauzet, from whom he inherited vineyards in the early 1990s. He spent his early career working for the family domaine, Henri Boillot, before making the wine at Domaine Olivier Leflaive. In the 1980s he began making wine from his own vineyards which were significantly expanded with his Sauzet inheritance of an outstanding array of Puligny premier cru sites. The family have exported their uncomplicated but precise winemaking philosophy further south to the Côte Chalonnaise, and more recently, Mâcon.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet, White Burgundy

Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
