2009 PULIGNY MONTRACHET Noyers Brets Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
||Origin: France, Burgundy
Lea & Sandeman review
After the Chassagne 'village', the Puligny is lighter, brighter, more expressive of pear, stones, and more taut a linear too. Greengages in the mid-palate. Will be easy to approach young, but will also certainly develop for three to five years.
Other reviews and comments
This Puligny has superb lift and definition on the nose with scents of gunflint green apple and smoke, lending this a Chablis-like personality. The palate is very well balanced with instant terroir gratification on the entry...feel those crushed stones crunching in your mouth! Crisp and focused on the finish with a spicy aftertaste, this is just superb.

Beautifully restrained Puligny at a very affordable price, this is smoky and taut with
minerally, matchstick notes, a dash of smoky oak and an elegant, subtle finish. 2-6 years. Top 50 best Value.

This is quite different aromatically speaking with a pretty mix of floral, citrus and pear notes introducing rich, generous and relatively fine middle weight flavors that possess good dry extract and acceptable length. In short, this is pretty but not deep on the dry and clean finish. 2013+

Lashings of oak, reductive slate and flint - very trendy, lean and lithe. Mouthwatering. Zing! 2012-2018

NB: they don’t use the word Domaine on the label, though Charles Lea assures me they don't buy in, it's just part of handing over to Laurent. Nice struck-match reductive nose. Good undertow of exciting fruit with some real roundness. Not immensely dense but hugely attractive. An unfortunate name perhaps... GV
