Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Referts, 2013, Domaine Etienne Sauzet
(from much lower altitude than the Hameau de Blagny, on clay-rich soil): Pale yellow. Lovely floral lift to the yellow peach aroma.
Tactile and dense but energetic too, with noteworthy dusty depth to the flavors of apricot, yellow peach, mint and menthol. Savory and distinctly dry on the persistent if rather uncompromising finish. Perhaps a bit acid for its volume, but there's power here.
