Domaine Francois Legros Puligny-Montrachet Noyer Bret 2017
Legros harvests his grapes 100% by hand, and then the expert sorters step in and do their work right there in the vineyard, so as to choose only the best fruit and leave the rest behind. Next, at least 90% of the grapes are destemmed in the winery and fermented in concrete vats. Following a 2-week fermentation with manual pigeage, the wine is transferred into a combination of new and used oak for 12-18 months, depending on the barrel. Wines are then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This Puligny Montrachet Chardonnay reveals a golden robe, limpid and crystalline. It is an aromatic wine, with a nutty flavor and accents of honey and brioche. With time, we will also discover a full-rounded mouth.
