Jean Chartron Puligny-Montrachet 1er ‘Clos du Cailleret’ Monopole 2010

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 29-Apr-2013
Full, light golden-yellow colour, very even. The bouquet is fulsome with breadth and depth, quite accessible with attractively ripe citrus fruits, nuts, butter, oak and toasty elements entwined with a harmonious balance. Waves of aromatics and flinty detail provide complexity. Medium-bodied and essentially quite elegant in proportion, this has a balance and completeness to the mouthfeel. The flavours are integrated and layered with all the classical components in harmony. The palate has a refined textural thread providing a linear core, and the acidity is poised with the fruit richness, resulting in archetype Puligny-Montrachet structure with more than a suggestion of sweetness. This will provide pleasurable drinking over the next 6-8 years. Fruit from 0.99 ha of wines, aged 20 – 66 y.o. from the ‘Clod du Cailleret’ monopole, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 30% new barrels. 18.5+/20 Apr 2013 RRP $175.00
