Puligny-Montrachet 2018

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies

Puligny-Montrachet 2018 play

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Villages
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

The clay and chalk soil of the central Côte de Beaune is very stony, drains well and warms easily. In the vineyards, sustainable viticulture helps ensure high-quality fruit. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, then gently pressed and fermented in oak without artificial temperature control. Partial or no malolactic fermentation is permitted based on the vintage, and a portion of the wine is aged in French oak. Fining and filtration is light. The goal is always to retain the wine’s complexity and structure.

harvest note

This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.

tasting note

Distinctive, concentrated fresh fruit and vanilla aromas carry on to the palate and culminate in a persistent, lingering finish. Puligny produces wines with greater firmness and depth than those of Meursault, and greater refinement and delicacy than those of Chassagne.

food pairing

Ideal with grilled fish, scallops in cream sauce.
