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.

    The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru has a more quintessential Puligny bouquet compared to the more flamboyant but perhaps less noble Champs Canet. This offers gunflint and limestone aromas, strict but satisfying. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and vivid with superb tension and energy towards the finish. This is a well crafted Les Referts from Jean-Marc Boillot that should age well in bottle. Drink 2022-2038

    Pale but lively colour. The nose has a graceful open elegance which shows attractively after the slightly strict village wine. Some apples, some spring flowers. Nicely balanced on the palate, still on the lean side though the Referts clays bring a little more depth, which is balanced by an attractive stony minerality.

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

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.
