A trace of mineral reduction adds breath to the green fruit and floral-scented nose. There is excellent power, size and muscle to the caressing yet quite serious big-bodied flavors that exhibit fine length and complexity if not the refinement of the best of these 1ers.
Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, the 2014 Meursault 1er Cru les Poruzots from Domaine du Château de Puligny-Montrachet was showing some SO2 issues that erased some of the delineation but one can tell there is real intensity locked into this wine. The palate is better with a twist of sour lemon on the entry, orange rind and a touch of white peach. It actually finishes with some style, the oak neatly integrated and feeling very persistent on the aftertaste. This has plenty of promise. (NM)
(50% in big barrels; 15% new oak): Pale, bright yellow. Lime, stone, minerals, fennel and chlorophyll on the nose and palate, plus a touch of barrel spice. A bit disturbed by CO2 but boasts lovely intensity and energy, not to mention good texture and density. Finishes with noteworthy length. (ST)
