Our Puligny-Montrachet is rather unique because three-quarters of the bottling comes from a 1.1 hectares parcel situated in the Puligny Premier Cru "Les Chalumeaux" that was declassified by INAO when it was replanted in 1975 because the former owner brought in 20 centimeters of topsoil from elsewhere.
This is the only Puligny-Montrachet village vineyard to sit mid-slope, amidst the Premier Crus. The two other parcels that complete this wine are located in "Levron" and "Baudrières-Nosroy" and compose another 0.38 hectare.
Our wines are known for their great aromatic purity. We always favor balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, of their appellations in general and of their specific terroirs in particular. The farming methods we use contribute to this individual style, and our winemaking methods aim to avoid excessive outside influences in order to bring out the equilibrium that can be found naturally in Burgundian terroir.
"A markedly floral-suffused nose expresses additional notes of honeysuckle, citrus and sandalwood. There is a much finer and more mineral-driven palate impression to the vibrant medium weight flavours that culminate in a balanced, refined and lingering finish. The high proportion of 1er juice is quite evident.
Score: 89-92." (Allen Meadows, Burghound, Tasted: Jun 15, 2016 Drink: 2021+ Issue: 63, Rated 'Outstanding'
