  • A classy Puligny-Montrachet with seductive aromas of white peach, apricot, and buttery notes, this is elegantly structured and supported by delicious minerality.

Whole bunches of grapes were gently pressed for two and a half hours, and the temperature of the must was lowered to 12°C. It was then immediately transferred to barrels without settling to preserve the maximum lees, which imparted the wine with texture and complexity. The wine was aged for 12 months without racking or stirring to bring out all of this wine’s natural minerality. A proportion of 40% was in new French oak barrels.

The Puligny-Montrachet appellation was created in 1937 on soils separated by only a few metres from the Grands Crus. For the most part, the vines are grown in brown limestone soils, or soils where limestone alternates with marls and limey clays, which play a great part in giving the wines in this appellation their structure. In some parts, the soils are deep, while in others the rock is exposed at the surface and the clayey alluvia soils are coarser higher up the slope and finer at the foot. The vines are planted at elevations of 230 to 320 metres, with east and south-easterly exposures, which helps to
protect them from the northern winds and is ideal for optimising sunlight exposure which ensures good maturity and concentration of flavour in the grapes.
