2017 Domaine Jean Chartron Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Pucelle"

SKU #1489573 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle displays a lovely bouquet of fresh peach, yellow orchard fruit, beeswax and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and broad shouldered, with lovely depth at the core, fresh acids and a long, expansive finish. It's an especially complete wine this year. Chartron will also be releasing a small barrel selection as a "Cuvée Centennaire" to commemorate the acquisition of this clos in 1917. The 2017 vintage is a decided success for Domaine Jean Chartron, an excellent source of pure and precise Puligny that deserves more recognition. Over the last decade, Jean-Michel Chartron has masterminded a quiet renaissance at this important estate. Winemaking here is classical, with modest percentages of new oak and fermentation and élevage in barrel, with the wines often spending a few months in stainless steel before bottling after a light fining. In 2017, the domaine will celebrate the acquisition in 1917 of its three important enclosed vineyards—the Clos des Chevaliers, the Clos de la Pucelle and the Clos du Cailleret—with a small special cuvée from each, and based on what I tasted, I suspect those wines will be well worth a special effort to seek out.

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Pucelle 1er Cru, a monopole of the Domaine, has a tightly wound bouquet with scents of green apple, linden and touches of caramelized pear. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and linear, very refined and composed with just a hint of spice towards the sustained finish. I love the sapid nature of this wine. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The creamy texture is the ideal foil for the peach, Key lime pie and baking spice flavors in this white. Firms up, with a line of vivid acidity carrying the flavors to a long conclusion. Smoky finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

92 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Pale primrose colour. This has an elegant stylish nose, not without concentration. Lime reduction notes at the end, the concentration is there though not as much immediate weight. The class shows in the finish. Tasted: October 2018." (1/2019)
