Overview of the Wine
Everything starts in the vineyard. To get the best grapes as possible, François is deeply committed to a precise and environmental-friendly approach of vine-growing.
The vines are thus managed as naturally as possible.

Since 1992, weeds in all our parcels of vines are removed by plowing by tractor or horse, and no weed-killer is used. As our Head of Culture has been taking care of the same vines for almost 30 years, he has an exact knowledge of each parcels and can conduct specific actions so that the grapes can reflect precisely the terroir they grow on. Respect for the environment and living organisms is something François deeply believes in.

Only natural-origin products are used, and only when required. Moreover, instead of burning vine shoots as it is often the case in Burgundy, we process them into small chips, compost and spread them in the vines. Coupled with horse manure, they enrich the soil without using chemical fertilizers. The vineyard density is around 10000 vines per hectare, enabling them to extract plant food and water from the terroir of Puligny.
Pruning of the vine is performed manually (“Guyot” pruning) and yields are strictly controlled via disbudding as well as green harvesting. Grapes are harvested manually every year.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine comes from four hectares of vines, spread over 8 different places: Derrière la Velle, Reuchaux, Corvée, Levrons, Aubues, Tremblots, Les Noyer Bret and Les Rousselles. This linear wine consists of a beautiful acidity that emphasizes and prolongs aromas of white peach with a long citrus finish.

94 Points - Jaspar Morris
Pale primrose here, very vibrant in colour and bouquet. Complex nose with some tension, a very faint toast in a way which works, and a sense of energy to the fruit – indeed more in fruit than flowers. Swells beautifully, yet retains its characteristic restraint. Really pretty finish, a very sound bet for a village Puligny
