Chateau de Puligny Montrachet Puligny Montrachet
Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Château de Puligny was a slumbering force until in 2012 Étienne and investors purchased the property and have radically reformed the estate, yields have been drastically reduced and the wines are handled much more sympathetically in the cellar so that the quality of the fruit dominates the oak. Dropping unsuitable vineyards, converting to organic (and indeed biodynamic) farming has further improved the winemaking.
Puligny needs more Premiership performers, and Château de Puligny has already established its credentials as an elite representative.
Tasting Note: 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.
