"Outstanding! A completely different nose speaks primarily of yellow orchard fruits that include faint hints of the exotic. There is excellent richness and volume to the plush and extract-rich flavors that possess a seductive texture on the delicious, complex and lingering finish. This is more complex but less mineral-driven than the Perrières." (Feb 2011)
"Pale, bright greenish yellow. Perfumed, expressive aromas of lime, white peach and menthol. Sweet, fat and deep; this is really stuffed with fruit. Plenty of alcohol here but with the material to support it. In a distinctly rich style." (Sep 2011)

"The 2009 Puligny Montrachet Les Referts (from 50+ year-old vines) is round, sweet and impeccably harmonious. It shows the influence of these compact soils in its plush fruit and extroverted, generous personality. I especially like the way the fruit continues to build toward the round, enveloping finish. This parcel is right next to the estate’s parcel in Perrieres, yet the wines are strikingly different owing to the greater presence of clay and the moisture-retentive soils. Anticipated maturity: 2012+." (Sep 2011)
