Area of production and geology: The vineyard is situated around the village of Puligny-Montrachet and part of the hamlet of Blagny, in Cote de Beaune. The soils are clay-rich and very stony lime. Vineyard on a gentle slope, rising from 230 to 390 m, facing East

Vinification: The grapes are picked manually into 12-odd kilogram harvesting crates and transported as quickly as possible to the winery, so as to avoid heat, rain, or bruising of the grapes. The contents of the cases then go through the sorting table, to get rid of stones, leaves, green bunches (verjux), etc... According to the nature of the vintage, 85 to 100% of the harvest is destemned so as to avoid excessive bitterness from the stalks. Fermentation with maceration then goes on for 15 to 20 days in conical vats equipped with radiators for thermoregulation. This allows control of fermentation temperatures and has direct influence on aromas and colour extraction. Finally, gentle pressing makes way for the breeding and elegance of the wine

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes: Beautiful deep ruby red in colour. Elegant yet intense nose opening up to notes of black berries, blueberry, blackcurrant with a touch of mild spice. Fleshy and well-balanced on the palate with lovely ripe, elegant tannins

Food Pairing: It will accompany the best cuts of red meat finely prepared, big and small game, marinades and civets, also quite strong but delicate cheeses. Serve at 17C
