Additional Information

In 2002 Etienne de Montille, of the Domaine de Montille in Volnay, was appointed as manager of the Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet and began a transformation at this estate. Organic farming began in 2002, and since 2005 they have been working using biodynamic farming practices as well. The Chateau was purchased by the Montille family in the spring of 2012, raising its standards and reputation significantly. The percentage of new wood is limited to 10%-20% for Village wines, slightly more for the Premier and Grands Crus. The Chateau’s underground cellars were renovated as well and are in use again. They favor wines of purity, elegance and harmony over power and concentration.

Tasting Notes

Pale, bright yellow with a green tinge. Pristine aromas of white peach, lemon, lime, noble herbs and white pepper. Tactile, smooth and rich, with sexy saline and floral elements giving the mid-palate a weightless impression. Nicely structured without being at all dusty or edgy. This firmly structured wine really spreads out to saturate the palate on the back end. From 40-year-old vines that yielded 35 hectoliters per hectare, according to chef de cave Brian Sieve.
