Winemaker's Notes

This wine is vinified according to the "cuvée ronde" principle, meaning the blending of wines from different and complementary lots. In recent vintages, 12 different parcels in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet have comprised the blend.

This is a glorious wine of very distinct aromas: almond paste, ferns, exotic fruit, white flowers with discreet acidity on the palate and a smooth, impressively long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A notably ripe yet high-toned nose that is at once airy and elegant and this refinement continues onto the very clean and detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess good volume as well as fine richness on the minerally, focused and vibrant finish. This is an excellent villages and recommended."
