The plot of Charmes in Puligny is a continuation of 1er Cru Charmes in Meursault, and shares many of its characteristics, like the light, fine, stony soils. The 2020 is limey and tensile at first, but there’s also some peachy fruit beneath, that will no doubt come to the fore as the wine evolves. This is straight-forward Puligny with a direct freshness.
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet les Charmes is matured in 20% new oak. It has a reserved bouquet with light grass clipping and malic scents, a touch of lime. The palate is balanced but straightforward, modest depth, quite saline on the entry with just the right amount of bitter lemon towards the finish and a saline aftertaste.
