According to the history books, the village of Puligny gained its name from Puliniacus, a Gallo-Roman military encampment. The Montrachet aspect was added in the last century to stress the consistently excellent quality of the wines produced in the local vineyards.
Pale yellow in colour this Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru is characterised by a very aromatic and expressive bouquet. It is an elegant wine with lovely length and a touch of mint on the finish.

"A very subtle touch of wood frames very fresh and again, admirably pure aromas of acacia blossom, spiced pear and green apple nuances. There is good volume and mid-palate density to the generous, sappy and seductively textured middle weight flavors that offer fine complexity on the mildly austere but impressively lingering finish. Worth a look."
