The last vintage for a site that's due for replanting, the 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts (Domaine Louis Jadot) wafts from the glass with aromas of freshly baked bread, buttered popcorn, citrus zest and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, taut and concentrated, it's chiseled and mineral, with tangy acids and a chalky finish.
This is very substantial on the nose. The oak is quite prominent too, at least in this sample. There is significant weight on the palate too, but in a sumptuous rather than heavy style. Fills out the back too with light acidity as well. Tasted: November 2021
Pale lemon in colour. There is a hit of smoky wood on the nose here, but it is matched by pithy citrus and glossy poached pear fruit. the palate has greater tension, with zesty citrus and fine, bright acidity offering virbancy and structure. Creamy, buttery stone fruits build through the mid palate to add generosity but a saline touch keeps focus throughout. Fairly full and fleshy on a long finish.
