2013 Puligny Montrachet Les Perrieres Francois Carillon

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



The 2013 Puligny-Montrachet les Perrières 1er Cru has a very withdrawn nose at the moment – hopefully more minerality will surface by the time of bottling. It does begin to open in the glass with delicate popcorn and almond scents – you just want to pry the aromatics open with your fingers. The palate is clean and fresh with orange zest and spicy notes on the entry, a crisp line of acidity and a long build on the finish that finally delivers what you expect from this vineyard with enticing salinity on the aftertaste. ||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
