Winemaker Notes

Aged on lees relatively long (for 18 months). One month before bottling, the wine, located in different casks, is placed in a stainless steel tank to make the assembly. The wine is fined and slightly filtered before bottling according to the lunar calendar. A wine with a lot of finesse and liveliness.

Pair with fish, crustaceans or white meat with cream sauce.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Bright medium yellow. Discreet, highly complex scents of citrus and stone fruits, musky minerals, hazelnut and flowers. A very pure, aromatic expression of soil, offering terrific mineral/citrus grip and a subtle saline quality. This dense but lively wine features a tactile, dusty, subtly mounting finish and captivating lime blossom lift.
Barrel Sample: 91-94
BH 93
A slightly more elegant nose also features plenty of floral influences along with cool citrus, apple and oak spice wisps. The racy and intense yet beautifully refined medium-bodied flavors possess excellent delineation on the bone dry and youthfully austere finale. This possesses first-rate depth and persistence while displaying plenty of the intrinsic class of a fine Puligny.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes displays scents of white currants, fresh peach, pear, hazelnuts and blanched almonds, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and concentrated palate that's muscular and powerful, though it's also more texturally refined than it was when I tasted it from barrel. Germain notes that this parcel has been converted to Guyot Poulsard pruning and is being farmed organically, so he expects it to improve further.

The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth, Vincent had a passion for working with vines and great respect for the potential that they represent, and his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune. To cope with the growing demand for his wines, he developed an approach that was new in Burgundy: he purchased grapes from producers who shared the same philosophy and the same high standards. In 2012, Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d’Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of nine people that had been faithful to the Maison for many years. Today, Eric Germain continues to uphold the style of the wines, and Marco Caschera markets them all over the world.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
