Towards the southern part of the Côte de Beaune lies the famed village of Puligny-Montrachet. Except for the hill of Corton, all the chardonnay Grand Crus reside in Puligny-Montrachet (sharing borders with Chassagne-Montrachet). The soils are primarily brown limestone with marls and stones at altitides renging from 230-320 meters. Pascal works with a friend who works all organilcally for his plots.
Aged 11 months in French oak.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES |
A colour embroidered with gold, brilliant, with a halo of greenish highlights. These tones become more intense with age. Its bouquet combines hawthorn, mature grape, almond paste, hazelnut, amber, lemongrass, green apple. You will find lactic (butter, warm croissant) and mineral (flint) aromas, as well as honey. The body and bouquet merge in a subtle harmony: full of grace under an inflexible nature and remarkable concentration.
