Albert Bichot Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru "Les Perrières" 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet|
The reputation of the village and its name are partly linked to the existence of the most famous white Grand Cru in Burgundy: the celebrated Montrachet. The "Les Perrières” Premier Cru is a single vineyard located at equidistance between Montrachet to the south and the Meursault Charmes appellation to the north. The particularly stony (“pierreuse”) soil found here is what gave the vineyard its name.
The nose is very typical of Les Perrières: a combination of freshness (mentholated notes) and lovely minerality. This wine features fruity flavours on the palate with good volume and pleasing roundness. The overall harmony of the wine comes together in a long, complex finish.
This is sumptuous, featuring peach and melon fruit wrapped in appealing toasty oak. This harmonious white starts out on the soft side, gaining structure as the long aftertaste extends. Drink now through 2023. 80 cases imported.
