A stylish and complete Premier Cru Chardonnay from Puligny Montrachet. As one of the lowest-lying Premier Crus in Burgundy, the south-east facing warmth of Les Referts draws it closer to the ripe, opulent and nutty style of bordering Meursault. Yet its heavy iron-clay soils deliver Puligny-Montrachet's famous mineral layering in a slightly fuller, more intense package than usual in a Premier Cru. Deeply complex and expressive for the price -- a serious bargain.

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

90-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"The nose is sufficiently reduced that about all that can be discerned are citrus wisps. Otherwise there is outstanding richness to the very generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent intensity as well as better depth on the robust finish that is a bit less refined than usual." Drink 2023+

17/20 JancisRobinson.com, Julia Harding

"Cask sample. ‘Allocation exhausted’, the note said; production was so small. Smells more cedary than the Chalumaux, as if the oak had had a different effect. Cedary on the palate too, very crisp, a little austere yet super-pure and long. (JH)" Drink 2021 - 2028
