  • Enticing aromas of yellow stone fruit, layered with citrus notes, lead to a fresh, chiselled palate, revealing a wonderful balance between elegance and energy. 2022 was an outstanding vintage. The growing season began with an unusually mild winter, which led to a clement spring. Warm weather during the spring culminated in an unnaturally warm April, prompting early budburst and flowering. This set the scene for a rapid growing season, with a hot, dry summer and low rainfall. Cleansing winds breezed through the vineyards, keeping the vines from disease. Harvest started early to retain balancing acidity in such a warm vintage. Excellent quality fruit. 

Immediately following the harvest, the grapes were gently pressed as whole bunches in a pneumatic press, followed by a static settling of the juice for 24 hours at 12°C. The musts were then transferred directly into barrels, where the alcoholic fermentation and malolactic conversions were carried out. No racking took place during the maturation. The wines spent 14 months in lightly toasted 'blonde' French oak barrels, of which 30% were new.

Winery

Bordered by Meursault to the north and Chassagne Montrachet to the south, the Puligny Montrachet appellation is at the heart of the world's finest Chardonnay terroir, including the famous Montrachet. Situated just above the 'Campaigns' at 350 meters elevation, on limestone and marl soil, the 1er Cru 'Garenne' vineyard benefits from an ideal south-easterly exposure. The Guyot-trained vines are over 50 years old, and the tiny plot covers just 0.30 hectares. At one time, a 'Garenne' was a piece of wood surrounded by walls owned by the lords for hunting small game, particularly rabbits. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and is HVE-certified. Research is being conducted to analyze the soil’s geology to measure the impact of the cultivation decisions on the vine and the resulting wine. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity.
