2020, Maison Jean-Marc Boillot, PULIGNY-MONTRACHET 'Les Referts'

$140
Pale lemon colour. There is a certain ripe opulence to the nose, but this holds together extremely well on the palate, with a fine thread of citrus preventing it becoming too heady. Concentrated and tense. **** 92 Jasper Morris MW.

Light, creamy nose. Broad and richer than most but still with good, well-integrated acidity. Neat and as yet fairly unformed. Good length though. 16.5++/20 Jancis Robinson MW

The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru is a little more backward on the nose compared to the Champ Canet, though it gradually opens with aeration, light sea spray scents complementing the malic fruit. The palate is well balanced with a lightly-spiced entry, quite waxy in texture with orange rind and quince towards the vibrant and pretty finish. Very fine. 91-93 Neal Martin.
