Bursting with aromas of citrus zest, smoke, fresh peach and white flowers, Sauzet's 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts is medium to full-bodied, satiny and vibrant, its textural attack segueing into a delicately fleshy mid-palate, before concluding with a chalky finish. (WK)
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru comes from two parcels totaling 0.70 hectares, on deeper, more clayey soils than other crus. It has a strict and quite correct bouquet, very focused and stoic at the moment, with flinty, petrichor aromas reluctantly emerging from the glass. The palate is very well balanced, offering pretty orange zest, quince and hints of pawpaw on the entry. A little spicier than Sauzet’s other Premier Crus and commendably persistent on the finish. Very fine and good aging potential. (NM)
An overtly floral mix reflects notes of acacia, lilac and rose petal while exhibiting additional notes of spiced pear and apple compote. The succulent yet elegant and refined medium-bodied flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the more tightly wound finale. This is also very well-balanced and should have no problem aging gracefully.
