Terre de Velle

Domaine des Terres de Velle, Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Referts 2015

RRP £69.38

In 2009, young couple Fabrice and Sophie Laronze bought an ailing domaine in Auxey-Duresses that has an eclectic group of vineyard parcels. Helped by an investor, they built a new winery and have got their vineyards into shape. An expressive aroma of marzipan and bay leaves. Rich strike to a broad and chunky palate, which has plentiful succulence. There is heft but also a sappy, fresh lift. Good Referts typicité. It doesn’t have the ‘sweet’ 2015 profile but instead a savoury, fresh earthiness. Bullish on the finish.
