2008 PULIGNY MONTRACHET 1er Cru Referts Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
||Origin: France, Burgundy
Lea & Sandeman review
Balanced, possibly a little restrained for now. There's an underlying intensity, a purity which is lovely. Mineral and streamlined, it will drink well from three year's time
Other reviews and comments
Youthful greeny gold, fine subtle nose, fresh spritz, lovely full, intense flavours, textured and rich with a touch of spicy oak from barrel-fermentation, good leesy textured Chardonnay fruit, subtle oak treatment and fine blade of balancing mineral acidity, drinking medium-term.
Riper on the nose than the Garenne but quite reserved, hinting at fruit salad, honey and nut oil. The palate offers a sweeter, richer impression, but bright acidity leavens the wine's thickness. In fact, this tactile wine shows a firm structure and excellent grip on the back and is distinctly tighter and less agreeable today than the Garenne. This cuvee struck me as the most austere of Boillot's premier crus in both 2008 and 2009.
