2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Truffière”

Bruno Colin

2015 Puligny-Montrachet <i>1er Cru</i> “La Truffière” Bruno Colin - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

I hope you enjoy sinking your teeth into this beauty over the coming months (and years).

The premier cru of La Truffière is located high on the hill above Puligny, below the Hameau de Blagny and above the premier cru of Les Folatières. The vineyard is split up by forest, which surely provides the origin of the name “truffle patch.” Just imagine the good fortune you would feel as you whistled your way home on a Saturday morning with a small basket full of freshly dug truffles, a late-morning truffled omelet and a glass of properly aged Puligny-Montrachet on your mind. Might the truffle spores somehow mingle with the vine roots and add the slightest truffly hint to the wine? Or perhaps the wine was simply named after the forest where those with the skill to find truffles unearthed them.
      In any case, this white Burgundy, from the very fine 2015 vintage, is a beautiful rendering of this storied cru. It will be a great base around which to experiment in the kitchen this fall. There is nothing quite like the golden nectar of the Côte d’Or as the first nip of the season begins to be felt. This bottle is open enough to be enjoyed immediately, and includes complex stone fruit aromas, flesh, depth, and the classic chiseled back end you’d expect from well-made Puligny-Montrachet. I hope you enjoy sinking your teeth into this beauty over the coming months (and years).

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
