  • Varietals

  • Tasting notes

    Its bright golden robe with haloed green reflections offers a bouquet that combines hawthorn, ripe grapes, almond paste, hazelnut, amber, lemongrass and green apple. There are also aromas of honey, dairy products (butter, warm croissant) and minerals (flint). It is on the palate that its balance and aromatic complexity unfold.

  • Food pairing

    This Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru will prove admirable with poultry as with seared veal, foie gras, lobster and crayfish, and grilled or fried sea fish. Goat’s cheese, Reblochon and soft paste bloomy rind cheeses such as brie de Meaux will be good companions.

    Service temperature: between 11 and 13°C

    Ageing potential: Can be enjoyed young, but expresses itself best in 5 years.
