The wines of Puligny-Montrachet are generally characterized by greater firmness and depth than those of Meursault, and by greater refinement and delicacy than those of Chassagne. Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of several growers in the commune with which its holds purchase agreements based on the quality of the fruit from harvest to harvest. A traditional vinification in oak casks, the age and origin of which are determined according to the qualities of the vintage, is carried out to enhance the full-fruited depth and seductive bouquet, marked by distinct notes of ripe peaches, for which Puligny-Montrachet is famous.
From the most refined village of the Côte des Blancs, this elegant, medium bodied Chardonnay is characterized by peachy stone fruit and melon flavors and aromas set in a firm, balanced structure ending in a fresh, racy finish.
"A sleek and sexy Puligny, there's plenty of alcohol driving it, banking voluptuous curves and accelerating past bacon fat, toasted oak and juicy apple flavors into a narrow straightaway in the finish. Age it a year or two and the middle of the wine may lengthen out a bit."
Wine & Spirits
"An exceptionally pretty nose of acacia and citrus blossom plus extract of pear aromas gives way to round, rich and nicely voluminous flavors that brim with dry extract on the citrusy and delicious finish. This is a serious villages that has enough fat to be enjoyed now or cellared for 4 to 6 years first. Worth a look."
