Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2018

    Sitting on the boundary of two great villages, this Referts balances the exuberance and generous creaminess of Meursault with the refinement of Puligny. There is a touch of white fruit and bright angular minerality. A wine of great energy and drive.

    Score: 90-93

    Moderate wood frames the essence of white peach, pear, apple and acacia blossom-scented nose. There is impressive volume to the dense and sappy medium weight plus flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel while displaying very fine complexity on the sneaky long, balanced and harmonious finish. Outstanding. Drink 2027+

    Wine Advocate, January 2019,
    Score: 90-93

    Fichet's lone premier cru, the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts exhibits pretty aromas of lemon oil, white flowers and crushed chalk, followed by a medium to full-bodied, delicately textural and decidedly elegant palate, with tangy acids but seemingly not quite the depth or length of his Meursault Le Tesson.

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, September 2018,
    Score: 91-93

    Bright yellow with a green tinge. Expressive, very ripe aromas of peach, orange zest and spicy oak, plus a suggestion of menthol. Sappy, concentrated wine with modest sweetness but lovely savory minerality. A rather concentrated wine with a firm edge of acidity and a slowly mounting finish featuring a note of modestly ripe peach and a chewy phenolic quality. One feels the millerandage here, as well as a touch of finishing warmth. (picked on the third day of the harvest with 13.8% potential alcohol)

Producer

Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet

This has got to be the most well organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Philippe’s attention to detail in his winery is a good indication of his handling of fruit, and goes some way to explaining the precise and distinct characteristics found in his wines each possessing their own unique timbre. These wines are made with great care and patience, and all enjoy 12 months in barrel (he tends to use larger 600 litre demi-muids rather than the traditional 228 litre pièces) followed by a further 6 months on fine lees in tank. His painstaking attention to detail is demonstrated in his wines, which are pure and seamless. Though most of his wines are only village lieux dits, they could easily be mistaken for premiers crus.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet

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.
