The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Canet 1er Cru displays more tropes of the warm growing season than the Champ Canet from Sauzet: brushes of dried mango, honeysuckle and a touch of beeswax. The palate is balanced, with a pleasant saltiness on the entry allied with a pleasing nuttiness that becomes more prominent toward the finish. This has cohesion and length, and quite a sophisticated finish that belies the tropically tinged nose. I would give this two or three years in bottle because I suspect it will turn into an excellent Champ Canet. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (NM)
A more elegant nose offers up wisps of citrus and spice that add breadth to the pear, apple, white flower and lemon rind scents. There is a highly seductive mouth feel to the sappy and succulent medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the balanced and caressing finish. This moderately powerful effort should also drink well young but I would be inclined to allow at least it 5+ years of cellaring first. *Outstanding*
It had been a year since I last tasted the 2015s from Jacques Carillon and the wines showed very nicely and quite as expected. The Champs Canet offers up a lovely nose of apple, white peach, pastry cream, beeswax, chalky soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and a bit closed down from its spring bottling, with a fine core, very good acids for the vintage and impressive length and grip on the nascently complex finish. This needs a few years to blossom. (Drink between 2021-2045)
Jacques Carillon's 2015 Pulingy Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Canet has lost none of its typical elegance in the 2015 vintage, wafting from the glass with a pure and classic bouquet of lemon oil and preserved lemon, white flowers, chalky soil tones and a subtle framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, cool and tensile, with nice depth and concentration and a chalky, bright finish. (WK)
Putty nose, not so obviously fruity as the village 2015. Clean and crisp and very bright fruited. Lovely balance with quite enough acidity. Very long. Showed very well. (WK)
