The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère 1er Cru is showing quite noticeable reduction on the nose, although there seems to be sufficient fruit underneath. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, and quite reduced like the nose, but it conveys a sense of energy, unlike the Les Perrières from François Carillon tasted alongside. There is a pleasing saltiness and slight nuttiness on the finish that bodes well for the future. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035

“The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère, Boillot’s emblematic cuvée, is one of the highlights of the range in 2015, opening in the glass with notes of struck flint, white peach, nutmeg and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, powerful and intense, with great energy and tension at the core, its long finish concluding with chalky grip. More vertical than the expansive Pucelles, this is the most tensile premier cru in the cellar in 2015.”
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030
Mouth-filling fruit – really juicy and distinct. Simply tremendous – gets all the savoury mineral flair of Puligny with great fruit clarity. (RH)
