Puligny-Montrachet “Le Trézin”

Puligny-Montrachet “Le Trézin” bottle

Puligny-Montrachet is one of the greatest white wines of Burgundy, one of the five jewels in the crown of the famous Côte de Beaune. As such, it is of course made from the great white grape variety of Burgundy, named after a small village in the region, Chardonnay. This vineyard is named after a spring or stream.

The subsoil is principally composed of clay and limestone. This wine was made with grapes from vines located on the upper part of the slope with south-eastern exposure.

  • Winemaking

    The grapes were handpicked on September and were hand sorted as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juice without over pressing the grapes. The wine was vinified and aged in barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak and aged on the lees for 10 months with occasional stirring. The wine is gravity fed into stainless steel tanks where it was blended and allowed to age for another 2 to 3 months.

    Aromas of toast.

  • Palate

    Lovely rich, opulent attack. Mineral and oak on the finish.
