2018 Domaine Paul Pernot Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

SKU #1469221 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A more restrained nose features ripe aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit, and in particular white peach and apricot, along with wisps of citrus peel and acacia blossom. There is once again a succulent and seductive mouthfeel to the bigger-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of sappy dry extract before terminating in a powerful and impressively persistent finish. Like several of the wines in the range, the 2018 Bâtard would benefit from developing more depth but given the probable aging curve, that should be feasible. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

William Kelley writes: "Domaine Paul Pernot, an important seventh-generation estate in Puligny-Montrachet, continues to sell the bulk of the production from its 20 hectares of vines to négociants, the Maison Joseph Drouhin prominent among them. Octogenarian Paul Pernot is still to be found at the domaine on a daily basis—moving pallets when I visited— but it's his sons who are in charge these days. The wine that is bottled under the Pernots' own label is made in much the same way that it always was: whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and matured for some 11 months, bottled before the next harvest. The house style...is typically fleshy and front loaded, with succulent acids and an open-knit, flattering profile. In my experience the wines neither demand nor especially reward prolonged cellaring, though Pernot wines from the 1970s and 1980s sometimes tell a different story. So readers looking for classic Puligny that drinks well young should give these wines serious consideration."
