Boyer-Martenot Puligny-Montrachet “Reuchaux” 2016
The tiny appellation covers less than a single square mile, and though neighbored on either side by the legendary towns of Meursault and Chassagne, many consider Puligny the source for the world’s finest white wine.
What makes Puligny-Montrachet so special? On the ground, it’s a combination of soil content (limestone, clay, and other minerals), slope, and exposition. In the glass, it’s a white Burgundy with added structure, more tension, and a beautiful, angular elegance. As Coates puts it, “Puligny is where Burgundian Chardonnay is at its most complete.” Most of Boyer’s vines are in Meursault, but his wine from the small plot in Puligny-Montrachet “Reuchaux” is as elegant and vibrant as his others.
