Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Vibrant scents of citrus fruits and white flowers. Silky, broad and refined, with its classic dryness leavened by an element of orchard fruit sweetness. Finishes dry, pure and persistent, with lingering notes of flowers and spices and the acidity, backbone and grip to support mid-term aging. This is always a rather broad, low-pH wine in this collection of premier crus. Incidentally, the estate is starting to replant some vines from the 1960s that are no longer very productive, according to Benoît Riffault. (ST)
Émile Boudot has crafted a really fine example of Referts in 2017, with the wine delivering a superb bouquet of apple, white peach, beeswax, chalky minerality, vanillin oak and white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and racy in personality, with fine mid-palate intensity, excellent focus and backend lift and a very long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. Just a classic example of Referts.
