Barrel-aged for 12 months.
In Puligny-Montrachet the wine lover enters into the holiest of holies of great white wines of Burgundy. In this village, south of Beaune, Grand Cru Montrachet has pride of place amongst the rest: Chevalier Montrachet; Batard Montrachet; Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet (all shared with the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet). A discerning observer, whatever his nationality, will not argue that the most complex whites, the most full-bodied and the ones most suitable for cellaring, in the world are produced here (one has to wait for about 10 years for them to be fully appreciated). But Puligny is also rich in Premiers Crus and in Village appellations. The style of Puligny wines is reputed to be more crisp and fresh than those of its two neighbours - Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet.
