Jean Chartron 2016 – Puligny-Montrachet

Jean Chartron 2016 – Puligny-Montrachet

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a fine juiciness, richness as well as concentration. The wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of quince, pear and small notes of kumquat, zest of dried mandarin, crushed brugnon associated with touches of vanilla, small yellow fruits, butter, lime zest / flowers as well as discreet hints of toasted oak and an imperceptible touch of pepper/spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-built and offers minerality, a beautiful definition, tension, a fine acid frame, a fine unctuosity, a beautiful juiciness as well as roundness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy lemon, juicy peach and small notes of mandarin associated with discreet touches of zest, lime, apple, fleshy small yellow fruits and discreet hints of butter (in the background). Good length. A beautiful, fruity, juicy and gourmand wine.
