About

92-94

"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru comes from a parcel close to Les Perrières. It has a much more reserved and broody bouquet compared to that vineyard, requiring more coaxing from the glass and, I suspect, more bottle age. The palate is quite saline on the entry with good acidity, and a little fatter than the Les Perrières. Mineralité floods through on the finish. Superb."

"The highlight of Carillon's range of premiers crus is the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Réferts, a lovely cuvée that exhibits pretty scents of citrus oil, white flowers and warm bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with both more concentration and tension than the Perrières this year, concluding with a promisingly chalky finish. I'm looking forward to revisiting it in bottle."
