⭐️91/100⭐️ “𝑳𝒆𝒔 𝑭𝒆𝒎𝒆𝒍𝒐𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒔” 𝑩𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒈𝒐𝒈𝒏𝒆 𝑪𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒐𝒏𝒏𝒂𝒚, 2019 📍Beaune, Côte d’Or, Bourgogne, France🇫🇷 🍇 100% Chardonnay ⚡️13% Tasted: April 2021 Together with Philippe Pacalet and Frederic Cossard (and others...), David Moret belongs to the new generation of Bourgogne winemakers, for whom the idea of being in possession of own vineyards is not the most important factor. Most important is the quality of grapes, from where they are harvested (villages, crus and parcels) and how they are cultivated - as naturally as possible. Though David doesn’t own any vineyards, he is a key participant in the practical part of the viticulture. He started his business, focusing on white wines, in 2000. “Les Femelottes” is a small 3 hectare parcel on clay and sandy soils next to the village of Puligny-Montrachet (basically 10 meters from being able to be labelled as that great village). Spontaneous fermentation, natural yeast and 10 months in oak barrels (around 20% new - his bigger wines get up to a maximum of 40% new oak). From the first smell, it’s clearly a classic white Bourgone, but for being “just” a Bourgogne Blanc, it seems way above the average level. The aromas are very elegant, expressive and balanced, offering yellow apple and overripe pear complimented by crème brûlée, butterscotch, oak, buttered warm brioche, vanilla, cloves, buttercup, yeast, chalk and wet stones. The palate is medium-bodied, a bit oily and with a sick acidity and minerality (relating a bit to what you sometimes get in Puligny-Montrachet). Elements of pomelo, crispy pear, grilled banana, vanilla, lemon oil, mild smoky oak and a citrus-filled finish. Amazing value for the price.
