A notably cool and restrained nose displays notes of matchstick and petrol characters along with green apple, acacia blossom and soft wood nuances. There is once again fine volume to the delicious and caressing flavors that possess an appealing minerality before culminating in an almond-inflected finish that offers very good if not elite depth and persistence. This too should drink well early.
The 2015 Truffières chez Boudot is a bit exotic this year, as the heat of the summer has given this lovely wine a nice tropical allure on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of pear, tangerine, a touch of papaya, lovely soil tones, musky, acacia-like floral tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and absolutely seamless, with a rock solid core, fine focus and grip and a long, energetic and complex finish. There is a bit of warm vintage character here (this is also a warmer, sheltered parcel of vines), but also excellent depth and complexity! 2017-2035.
The 2015 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Truffières captures the trademark tropical scents of the vintage: fresh pineapple, passion fruit and a hint of white peach, whilst neatly avoiding any sense of blowsiness or overpowering sensations. The palate is harmonious with a smooth texture, notes of toffee apple, lemon curd and walnut segueing into a finish that feels a little richer than the 2014 last year, but thankfully it maintains fine balance. Whilst the Puligny Hameau de Blagny seems a little more effortless, this remains a fine proposition. (NM)
Pale, bright yellow. Deeply pitched, reticent nose hints at ripe apricot. Fatter, sweeter and earthier than the Champ Gain; broader and richer too but its ripe stone fruit flavors show less definition and lift than the Champ Gain. These vines are located just under the Champ Gain but the soil is deeper here. Still, the wall between the two vineyards makes La Truffière a slightly hotter site, and these vines suffered from some drought stress in 2015. (ST)
