Description

Puligny-Montrachet 1 er cru le Hameau de Blagny 2017 Domaine Cruchandeau

Variety: 100% Chardonnay

Reasoned agriculture, that is, without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

The grapes come from a vineyard over 50 years old, located halfway between Puligny Montrachet and Mersault. with an altitude of 320 meters above sea level, while the sun exposure is in the full south. The vineyard was cultivated by Ciscercian monks since the early 1900s.

Soil is mainly composed of white marl and clay. White marl is a compact stratification of clay, calcium carbonate and marine fossils, where the majority percentage is limestone.

After the harvest, carried out manually in 20 kg boxes drilled with selection of the bunches, cold maceration for 24 hours. After pressing, alcoholic fermentation follows, in oak barrels and with indigenous yeasts.

30% of the mass ages in new oak barrels, while the rest in wood used for a period of 18 months.

Puligny-Montrachet 1 er cru le Hameau de Blagny 2017 Domaine Cruchandeau

Intense straw yellow color.

On the nose it has the class and elegance of the great Burgundy Chardonnays. We do not need periphrases, but the concreteness of qualitatively superlative aromas of fresh fruit. White peach, banana, and medlar. Jasmine, camellia and chamomile flowers. Dried fruit follows with almonds and hazelnuts. Some aromatic herbs color the side dish.

The palate it is creamy and well supported by an authoritative structure. Excellent minerality, and together with freshness, give depth to the sip. Extremely pleasant and endowed with complexity and luxuriant facets. The nose comes with aromas of croisant, black locust mile and panna cotta.

On the whole of the three aspects Julien Cruchandeau designs an excellent Chardonnay, with the advantage of not only being good, but also of moving. Fully attributable to the grape variety and especially to the region of origin. Tasted blind it does not leave you uncertain: it is Burgundy!
