Producing the purest expression of the Chardonnay grape – along with neighboring appellation Chassange-Montrachet, of course – is Puligny-Montrachet. A golden nectar grown against the backdrop of picturesque suntanned vistas, this tiny village has been astonishing senses for centuries. The vines used in this Village wine are separated from Grands Cru territory – the world-renowned Batard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet plots, for example – by the merest of meters.
Our Puligny-Montrachet Vintages
With beautiful Puligny-Montrachet fruit, we produce a wine golden in color with hues of green. The bouquet combines hawthorn, hazelnuts, and lemon grass, together with fresh pastries and flinty minerals. The concentration and great elegance of the body merge in subtle harmony with the fresh aromas. A perfect expression of Chardonnay, this wine pairs best with dishes that are delicate, yet also rich.
Highs and Lows
2015 began with a mild, wet winter and spring, providing ample enough water reserves for what turned out to be a hot dry summer. Flowering was early, beginning in the final days of May. Rapid development was brought by some rain from the 10th June. The month of June turned out to be the warmest since 2003, causing poor fruits set in Pommard. Grape ripening started in mid-July but then being stopped in its tracks by temperatures which exceeded 35°C for much of the month. August saw a return to normal temperatures. Prompted by the cool air, ripening advanced rapidly, and veraison was complete by halfway through the month. Harvest started on the first days of September under very good conditions. The grapes were healthy, with minimal sorting required. While the overall 2015 harvest yield was really low, the quality of the wines is high, on a level of the most famous vintages such as 2003, 2005 and 2009.
