2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

We fancied salmon tonight and I grilled some succulent salmon fillets and made this sumptuous
Marco Pierre White butter- and tomato sauce to go along. I added some fried pancetta to accompany the wonderful smoky note of the wine I had opened earlier. A perfect match! :-)

2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot
A wonderful rich, intense, spicy nose with notes of grilled lemons, pickled ginger, melted butter and a hint of banana peel. A underlying firmness that is impressive. Just lovely. Some apriots after a while. This is right up my alley. Still young.
The taste is opulent yet fresh and pure with notes of lemon cream, summer flowers, apricots and dark fudge. The finish is long, long. long and just brilliant. Manage to combine lushness with a firmness and playfulness. A very fine acidity. This is a serious wine. Too bad that this was my only bottle. The 2008 tasted here.
96p   (tasted 2016/10)
