Puligny-Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune, is an appellation that covers a surface area of 211,46 ha. It includes 17 single vineyards classified as Premier Cru that represent 98,18 ha. The commune of Puligny-Montrachet also produces 5 Grands Crus. Premier Cru 'Sous le Puits' is located at the top of the village.

Origins

The subsoil is principally composed of clay and limestone. This wine was made with grapes from vines located on the upper part of the slope with south-eastern exposure.

Varietal

100% Chardonnay

Vinification and maturing

The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine was aged on the lees for 10 months with occasional stirring.
