Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    This premier cru, with clay and marl soils, lies on the border with Meursault and therefore makes a bolder style of Puligny. With lovely aromas of mandarins and limes, the palate is full, intense and textured, with flavours of buttered toast. A wine with great aging potential.

    The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru has an uncompromising stoic, stony bouquet that is quintessential Puligny. The palate is very well balanced with a vivacious orange rind and lemon zest opening. I love the waxy texture here and the harmony towards the finish, the oak neatly integrated and prolonging the aftertaste. Superb. Drink 2022-2036

    Score: 91-93

    Ripe and fresh notes of hazelnut, pear and pretty floral nuances precede the succulent, round and solidly concentrated medium weight flavors that possess solid punch on the more complex finish that is also appealingly clean and dry. This lovely effort is very Puligny in style and character and a wine that should age well yet be approachable after only a few years of bottle age. Drink 2026+ Sweet spot Outstanding

    Score: 90-93

    Delightful pale lemon colour with slight green tints. The nose is elegant and balanced with just a suggestion of the clay richness that comes from this terroir. It fills the mouth very nicely, showing predominantly white fruit, attractively ripe and with good length, finishing in Fichet’s characteristically fresh fashion.

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.
