Louis Jadot Puligny Montrachet 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet|
(this was the first 2016 village wine bottled by Jadot, in January of this year; production was nearly normal at about 100 barrels): Bright, pale yellow. Very pure aromas and flavors of white peach and white flowers with a touch of stone. A bit streamlined on the palate but pure and energetic, displaying noteworthy precision and a light touch. Nicely balanced village wine with very good finishing lift. I prefer this rather graceful wine to Jadot's village Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet bottlings in 2016 as it shows little evidence of frost.
The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet Villages has a simple, light but attractive bouquet with limestone and green apple scents wafting from the glass. The palate is balanced with quite a rich and generous opening, more fatness here than I was expecting from a village cru, but with a decent white chocolate-tinged finish. Fine.
