    2006: Beautiful, very classic vintage with a heatwave in the month of July. Very great year for white wines - these are rich and opulent. Lovely vintage producing delicious red wines that are extremely enjoyables as of now.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 1.50 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Beautiful vineyard in the heart of the greatest terroir for Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune. Southeast-facing slope overlooking the village of Puligny-Montrachet.
    Clay-limestone soil with a high proportion of stones, which is conducive to excellent ripeness.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes are handpicked into small crates and the whole bunches are then pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing take place 100% in oak barrels with bâtonnage (lees stirring).
    100% malolactic fermentation
    Duration of ageing:19 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2008 (after bottling)
    COLOUR: Deep golden colour with pale silver highlights
    BOUQUET: Delicate and ethereal with a nose of raisins and candied citrus (lemon) accompanied by slightly roasted notes
    PALATE: Extremely subtle and polished, with elegantly tangy, toasty and roasted flavours
    Long, generous aftertaste with a strong mineral component
