Puligny-Montrachet

Terroir

While the commune of Puligny-Montrachet is world-famous for having most of Burgundy's white Grands Crus, it is also well-known for the quality of its village appellations. One reason is because, together with its neighbour Chassagne-Montrachet, its vines enjoy an easterly and south-easterly exposure - perfect for our Chardonnay Bourguignon!

Vinification & Elevage

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes are brought whole to our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (30 % of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation over 14 months.

Commentaries by our oenologist

"This wine is yellow in colour with golden highlights. Its nose is discreet at first, then progressively develops notes of fruits and soft spices . In the mouth it is generous, soft and rich. Serve between 8 and 10°C"

Food pairing

It is the ideal accompaniment for foie gras, poultry in a sauce, fish, lobsters and crawfish.
