2019 Domaine Paul Pernot et ses Fils Puligny-Montrachet

SKU #1529038 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark More complex and elegant aromas display petrol, white flower and apple hints. The fleshy, round and seductively textured flavors possess good vibrancy as well as better length on the balanced bitter lemon-inflected finale. This well-made effort should both drink well early but also reward 3 to 6 years of cellaring. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (6/2021)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of fresh pear, warm bread, beeswax and toasted nuts preface Pernot's 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Village, a medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy wine that's round and charming, reflecting the sunshine of the vintage. As I wrote several years ago, 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, with bottling before the next harvest. The house style is typically fleshy and front loaded, with succulent acids and an open-knit, flattering profile. The fundamentals of that aesthetic remain very much the same, but the big change is a move to Diam closures: combined with the domaine's standard 30-35 parts per million free sulfur dioxide, the result is wines that—while remaining inherently quite structurally open-knit—are a bit more reserved out of the gates than was hitherto the case, even showing a touch of light reduction. That should translate to greater longevity, so it will be interesting to look at these wines—and to follow any other developments chez Pernot—over the (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Having good holdings across the village, the Pernots just keep the best bits for themselves, which in 2019 includes Le Trézin at the top of the slope. Pale lemon, the nose is a bit blocky again, lacks elegance. Then white fruit on the palate, a certain amount of heat, and juicy fruit behind. The impression is that they may have sacrificed finesse in the interest of weight on the palate – I shall be interested to see how this ages. Tasted: October 2020."
