Raised in a judicious 10-12% new oak, the 2013 Puligny-Montrachet has a more reticent nose compared to the Chassagne premier crus at the moment. The palate is taut on the malic entry, with a pleasant twist of lemon. There is satisfactory weight in the mouth with a saline aftertaste that lingers long after the wine has departed. This is commendable wine, one that I think will be best consumed in its youth.||Visiting Francois Carillon on a chilly, windy Monday evening, it was somewhat a relief to step inside his warm barrel cellar full of newborn 2014s. François told me that he cropped the 2013 vintage September 26 to October 4. I enthused about his roster of 2013s that I feel show more drive and ambition than when I tasted the 2012s from barrel a year ago. In particular, his Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru was spectacular, one of the best of several I have encountered from barrel. Given the reasonable prices for the wines, many of these come recommended. eRobertParker.com.December, 2014
