Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes 2016
Côte de Beaune
This wine is rich with some hazelnut, fern, tobacco, and truffle aromas after several years of ageing.
Les Combettes is situated close to "Les Referts" on the edge of Meursault vineyard (at the East). The soil is not very deep with little stones, well drained, it can heat up easily. Because of its composition (chalky and clayey), it doesn't keep a lot of acidity.
After a complicated start to the growing season with a number of frost episodes, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.
Maison Louis Jadot practices traditional oak vinification. It is then aged an average of 18 months before being bottled.
