A precise and elegant Puligny Montrachet with notes of

Producer Note
Domaine Florent Garaudet is a small, family-run estate located in the village of
Monthelie, between Volnay and Meursault in the heart of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune.
Approximately 60% of the three hectare estate is planted with Pinot Noir in vineyards
surrounding Monthelie, while Chardonnay accounts for 40% covering the appellations
of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Florent Garaudet is the fifth generation to
cultivate a part of the family domain. He blends a highly traditional approach with a
passionate vision for quality and innovation. Florent uses minimal intervention vinification
techniques in his gravity-fed winery to produce artisanal and lively wines, which display
all the rich, complex characters typical of this distinctive terroir.
Vineyard
The grapes come from four terroirs within the Puligny-Montrachet appellation, where the
average vine age is 45 years. The younger vines impart fruit-driven characters, while the
older vines imbue the wine with freshness and depth of flavour. The clay-limestone soils
are formed on gravel beds which produce elegant, fine wines with a touch of mineral
salinity. The vines are sustainably cultivated to respect the equilibrium of the
environment, with the aim of limiting treatments to what is strictly necessary. Careful
pruning ensures foliage is left from a height of one metre, so the grapes have sufficient
leaves to synthesise the natural sugars. This labour intensive pruning also encourages
aeration of the bunches and optimal sunlight exposure. 90% of the work is done by
hand, and only by professionals using the purest Burgundian traditions, to ensure a
modest yield of high quality, ripe fruit. Manually harvested at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were pneumatically pressed at less than 1.2 bar to preserve the aromas.
The must was clarified by cold settling over 24 to 48 hours, before being transferred by
gravity into French oak barrels. Fermentation took place with the natural yeast present
on the grape’s skin, to obtain the purest expression of terroir. Maturation on the fine
lees lasted for one year in carefully selected barriques of 228 litres, of which 50% were
new; the remainder were seasoned barrels of three to five vintages. The wine was
bottled with minimal fining and filtration and only limited sulphur was applied.
Tasting Note

layered with mineral notes through to a touch of salinity on the long finish.
