Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau De Puligny-Montrachet Chevalier Montrachet 2016

Rated 93 by Vinous Media
The freshest nose of these 2016s, offering scents of stone fruits, nutmeats and minerals. Thick and ripe on the palate but sappy too, with its apple and citrus flavors given definition and drive by salty minerality. Finishes saline, energetic and long, with a strong floral quality and no rough edges. This is superb.
Rated 92+ - Pale yellow. Yellow fruits, ripe apple, white flowers, warm stones and mirabelle on the nose, complemented by toasty, spicy oak and a nutty nuance; the freshest and most complex of these 2013s. Plush and smooth on the palate, with flavors of menthol, white flowers and cinnamon building nicely toward the back and finishing with a hint of blond tobacco. Harmonious acidity gives the wine very good balance and a rising finish. - Vinous.

Winery Chateau De Puligny-Montrachet

Region: Burgundy

In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region's warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.

Appellation: Cote De Beaune

France's beautiful and highly esteemed sub-region of Cote De Beaune is rightly regarded as the home to many of the world's finest, most complex and fascinating white wines. The white wine industry of Cote De Beaune is based almost solely around the Chardonnay grape, which flourishes especially well in the fine climatic conditions the region receives, and ripens well due to the mineral rich soils which typify the area. Chardonnay is renowned for its ability to express the best points of its terroir, and local winemakers claim that a mixture of traditional techniques and the stunning soils they work with is the secret to their success. There is also a huge red wine industry in Cote De Beaune, which, although not quite as famous as the white wines that leave the region, produces remarkable results from the excellent Pinot Noir grapes which grow there.
