This is quite firmly reduced and unreadable today. The sleeker and more mineral-driven if less opulent middle weight flavors possess excellent detail on the saline, balanced and beautifully persistent finish.
The 2015 Perrières from Domaine Sauzet is ripe and very, very pure, with a bit more raciness and overt mineral drive than the lovely Referts. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, chalky minerality, orange zest, vanillin oak and a floral topnote redolent of lemon blossoms. On the palate the wine is ripe, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent acidity and focus, good backend minerality and lovely length and grip on the suave and well-balanced finish. Fine juice. 2018-2040.
The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Perrières felt closed and timid on the nose after the more expressive Les Referts, despite coaxing. The palate is taut and linear with touches of Granny Smith apples, walnut and a pinch of spice towards the finish, although I discerned more precision emanating from the Les Referts this year. Drink over the next decade. (NM)
Bright, pale yellow with green highlights. Classic nervy Puligny scents of white peach, minerals, crushed stone and hazelnut. Less thick and concentrated than the Referts but with lovely freshness and lift to its white peach and mineral flavors. This conveys an impression of higher acidity but that's probably due to the wine's lighter weight and underlying minerality. Vibrant and well made, from a crop level of about 40 hectoliters per hectare. (ST)
