Puligny-Montrachet Les Reuchaux, Renaud Boyer 2020
Renaud Boyer, originally from Meursault trained to be an engineer before switching careers and becoming a vigneron of land in Saint Romain, previously belonging to uncle Thierry Guyot, an organics enthusiast who had been working the vines free of chemicals since the 1980's. He has since converted to biodynamic status, and is certified by Demeter. The vines are now spread between the Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint Romain. As you might expect of someone who looks to Emmanuel Houillon, Patrick Meyer and Philippe Jambon for inspiration and guidance, his work in the cellar is kept to a minimum. Renaud's wines are seen as strong competition to some of the famous names in the region.
The Puligny-Montrachet Les Reuchaux is brilliant. It has the tightly-wound texture one might expect of classy wines from this appellation. Initially one gets citrus pith and crystallised fruits (grapefruit, lemon & orange), There’s an additional rich oatmeal aromatic from the lees. Powerful and mouth-filling with a driving intensity. A delicious wine with layers of complexity, white peach (flesh and stone) and yellow citrus flavours, white spice, savoury elements and digestible minerality.
