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.
