Review:
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru produced an unusually bountiful crop this year, at around 45hl/ha instead of the 30hl/ha of recent years. It has a very intense, precise bouquet with crushed limestone infusing the green apple and citrus aromas. The palate is very focused on the entry, revealing a touch of spice and hints of fresh gooseberry. It feels a little austere overall, but there is such energy that it will repay cellaring. Excellent.
