Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Puligny Montrachet 2019
90 points -The Wine Advocate
"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Village opens in the glass with notes of white peach, citrus oil, spring blossom, pastry cream and struck match. Medium to full-bodied and fleshy but tightly wound, it's lively and mineral, concluding with a chalky finish.
Though quantities are down due to frost, the 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly at Maranges reference-point Domaine Bachelet-Monnot, where brothers Mark and Alexandre preside over a superb portfolio of serious, structured whites and demonstrative, pleasure-bent reds. Farming organically but without certification, the style here continues to evolve: since 2016, grapes have been crushed before pressing, and the brothers now retain more lees. As has been the case for some time now, white wines ferment and mature in 350-liter barrels. Red wine vinifications are gentle and are followed by maturation in modest percentages of new wood. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended." -WK 07/2021
