Domaine Gilles Bouton Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru "Sous le Puits" 2022
Gilles Bouton took over the 4 hectare family vineyards in 1977 and has expanded it to a further 8. The vineyards are spread over four villages (Saint Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault) all stars in making white burgundy. The vineyards are located in 70 different plots which is typical of the fragmented holdings in the Burgundy region. He was joined in 2008 by his son Julien and they sell most of their wines to private individuals, we are lucky enough to get a limited consignment of his wines once a year. Home to some of the world’s most extraordinary Chardonnays including the famous Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet is the 216 hectare middleman of the white wine villages, bordered by Meursault to the north and by Chassagne-Montrachet to the south.
Pale primrose in colour, there’s a little toast from the wood. The wine has significant tension and energy, lemon notes, and good length in its linear rather than rounded style.
