Referts is the closest vineyard to Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes. Subtle differences in the soil lead to a wine that is know to be fattier and unctuous. The name Referts refers to ‘a field of bush and rocks’ — the land had to be thoroughly cleared before vines could be planted. The soil is marly at the top and and darker more iron-rich at the bottom, therefore it produces a more unctuous and a fatter wine than the others in Puligny-Montrachet.

After being hand-harvested, the grapes are immediately pressed. Following fermentation, the wine ages 17 months in oak barrels (25% new oak).

This wine is sophisticated and concentrated on the nose, with distinct aromas of citrus and apricot, that develop into honey and butter with age. It showcases the finesse of a Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, with a dense and fleshy texture. An ideal partner to seafood, fish in sauce of mature cheeses.

“A bright wine with peaches, sliced apples and lemons. A touch of the exotic. Medium to full body, crisp acidity and a clean, vertical finish. Energetic and intense. Drink on release.”
