Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 88-90

“The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Canet is more in line with the La Perrière: a strict, no-frills bouquet with flint and cut grass aromas. The palate is well balanced with a slightly waxy texture. This is a more resinous Puligny from Sauzet in 2016, more about the texture than overt fruit expression, although it lets its hair down with that dash of white pepper on the aftertaste. My intuition is that it might be one of the more forward wines from the domaine this year. Not bad, however, not as good as the 2015 last year.” [Neal Martin, 29/12/2017]

Vinous – 91-93

(13% natural alcohol, one of the highest in 2016 along with the Combettes; some of these vines were planted before World War II): Pure but discreet scents of brisk yellow fruits and musky hazelnut. Silky and creamy in the middle palate, with solid minerality giving shape to the wine and a touch of citrussy bitterness conferring grip to the dry, stony whiplash of a finish. Boudot’s vines are on the mid-slope, next to Meursault Perrières–soil he describes as "a perfect compromise of clay and chalk." They were the first to be harvested in 2016 as the fruit ripened quickly on this heat-retaining broken white calcaire. [Stephen Tanzer, 09/01/2017]
