Puligny Montrachet is recognized for its white wine that should exhibit a lemon-lime tropical zest. Located between Meursault and Chassagne- Montrachet the wines from Puligny are elegant and exhibit a racy mineral quality unique for this variety. Our Puligny comes from our vines planted from 1952-1954 below the 1er Cru Clavaillon; “Les Grand Champs” and “Les Petits Grands Champs.”

The grape’s natural yeasts were used for fermentation, 100% malolactic fermentation (natural) with a small amount of battonage. The wine matured 13 months in barrel 5 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
