Vacation Wines - No 19 -2008 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts, Bachelet-Monnet
2008 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts, Bachelet-Monnet
I was eager for some fine Chardonnay and opened this bottle to go along some salmon and vegetables. It worked out fine :-)
The nose is deep and smoky with notes of lime cream, yellow plums, warm hayand chrushed rocks. Deep and fine. A hint of maturity.
The taste is structured and racy with notes of lime, starfruit, yellow apples and lots of dry minerals. The finish is long and spiked with a high acidity content. Really fine. Salivating. 5+ years.
