Puligny-Montrachet (pronounced Mont-Rachet) shares with Chassagne the most perfect expression of Chardonnay.?Only a few meters from the Grands Crus, the Appellation d’Origine Contr?l?e instituted in 1937 offers a white wine with a strong personality and a high reputation.?The vines are mainly planted on limestone soil, sometimes deep or even on hard rock.?Exposures to the east and south-east between 230 and 320 meters above sea level.
Takes its name from “Pul”, radical meaning swamp.?The village of Puligny-Montrachet is installed on small pockets of water preventing any construction of buried cellars.
Surface of the production area: 114.22 ha
Altitude: 230-250 m
The appellation lies at the bottom of the hillside, on brown soil stretching from Meursault in the north to Chassagne-Montrachet in the south.?The soil is clay-limestone with a strong presence of pebbles.?Depending on the place, the style differs a little but always allows to associate elegance and richness.?We are lucky to have a representative of all the climats of the appellation, more than 21 in total.
