This Puligny-Montrachet is rather unique because three-quarters of the bottling comes from a 1.1 hectares parcel situated in the Puligny Premier Cru "Les Chalumeaux" that was declassified by INAO when it was replanted in 1975 because the former owner brought in 20 centimeters of topsoil from elsewhere. This is prohibited by INAO's regulations. Since then, the combination of erosion and biodynamic farming have made the vines' roots dive deeper to the original terroir. This gives our Puligny-Montrachet a density and an unusual complexity for a village wine that places it somewhere between a very good village wine and a Premier Cru.
This is the only Puligny-Montrachet village vineyard to sit mid-slope, amidst the Premier Crus. The two other parcels that complete this wine are located in "Levron" and "Baudrières-Nosroy" and compose another 0.38 hectare.
