Puligny-Montrachet shares with its neighbor Chassagne-Montrachet some of the finest white wine vineyards in the world. This commune’s Premier Cru vineyards stretch across the upper half of the Puligny slope, from Meursault to Chassagne. Like Les Combettes, Referts is located on the eastern edge of Puligny on fairly shallow clay and chalk soil with small stones. In winemaking, the Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels.
Les Referts is less tight than Les Combettes, offering rich aromas and flavors of white fruit and almonds. It will develop in the bottle for 10 to 15 years.
