Producing the purest expression of the Chardonnay grape – along with neighboring appellation Chassagne-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.
This is the Puligny-Montrachet you’ve been looking for. A clear lemon color, fused with a golden hue, blooms into view inside your glass. A pronounced intensity of aromas of white flowers, peaches, pineapple and a distinctive minerality – chalk and wet stones – are present. Swirl in the mouth – the wine is dry with a distinct acidity, alcohol, and body. A creamy, velvety texture complements the smooth and persistent finish. This Puligny-Montrachet defines the essence of the appellation’s acclaimed mineral-edged terroir and rewards every sip with a generous concentration and complexity of aromas, balanced with a refreshing acidity, a feature that rewards the wine with a longer potential for ageng, developing more complexity with time.
