2016 Fernand Et. Laurent Pillot Puligny-Montrachet Villages

$53.00

The Puligny-Montrachet village wine comes from one plot, "Noyers Brets" immediately southwest of the village itself and not far from the famed Grand Crus Batard-Montrachet. Fernand Pillot purchased the parcel in the 1960s, a time when there wasn't much interest in that particular vineyard. Now, how things have changed! A balance of strength and elegance showcase the Puligny-Montrachet designation.


ABV % = 13.5

Puligny-Montrachet

Puligny-Montrachet is the most powerfully mineral of the white wines in Beaune. Here is where the limestone takes center stage in the village wines, the premier crus, as well as the grand crus. The village wines are known to be incredibly structured, with lots of earth, mineral, and lean, nervy fruit. Due to their power, these wines can take a fare amount of new wood, and the toast and spice balance the fruit character. The grand crus are Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, and Bienvénues-Bâtard-Montrachet. They are listed in descending order of power-scale, however none of them are light by any means.
