2015 Domaine Paul Pernot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Champ Canet - Clos de la Jacquelotte"

SKU #1280752 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 *Outstanding* (La Jacquelotte is a climat within Champ Canet) A pungent nose presently is composed by notes of matchstick, petrol, ripe pear and acacia blossom wisps. There is impressive richness to the full-bodied and generously proportioned flavors that brim with dry extract that coats the palate on the delicious, complex and solidly persistent finish. This should drink well young but also repay a few years of cellaring. Drink: 2020+  (6/2017)

88-90 points Vinous

 Pale green-tinged yellow. Spearmint and dusty stone aromas suggest an austere wine. Then juicy and uncompromisingly dry on the palate, with a cool quality to the flavors of mint, white pepper, crushed stone and pine nuts. Finishes with a slightly bitter lime edge. In a classic, laid-back style: I never would have picked this as a 2015. (ST)  (9/2016)

K&L Notes

In the case of Domaine Paul Pernot, the vigneron tradition runs back about 200 years. Although Paul Pernot founded the domaine in 1959, the family had been growing and making wine long before that—mostly for the Drouhin family. Now the third generation of Pauls is learning the classic, careful farming and winemaking that makes this domaine such a success. Based in Puligny-Montrachet, the Pernots touch some of the best Chardonnay vines on earth. But the care used on their high end wines extends all the way down through to their Bourgogne Blanc (still largely Puligny). As a general rule, the Pernots employ a very transparent winemaking style, designed to highlight the purity of fruit, and its natural expression. I’m not talking here about wild yeast, clay amphora and cloudy juice in the bottle. No, this is Burgundy afterall. The Pernots use well-made French oak barrels, a small percentage of which are new, a little batonnage, and light filtration and fining, bottling just prior to the next year’s harvest—all the methods that have come to come to be traditional in Burgundy, but all in moderation, with a good sense of what the fruit requires.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Puligny Montrachet

- Puligny is a village which has been called 'attractive, self-confident and unpretentious.' Some of the world's greatest dry white wines come from here. The Grands Crus of Montrachet, Chevalier Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet, and Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet are on the southern edge, adjacent to the village of Chassagne. In Puligny, you can see the distinctly different soils which yield the different wines. The borders of the Grands Crus are anything but arbitrary, and the character of the wines form Puligny are distinct from Meursault to the north and Chassagne to the South. The vineyards closest to Meursault have thin soils, with slate and rock. Their wines are more delicate and minerally but no less lovely than the more powerful wines from the vineyards towards the Grands Crus.
