Tasting notes: This Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru is like an explosion with a rich bouquet, and an ample and textured mouth having undergrowth and truffle notes.
Story: This parcel was bought by Vincent’s parents in 1979 and was initially planted in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir! His father pulled the vines out and totally replanted in white. The parcel is located in lieu-dit « au Chaniot ».
Vincent and Aline are both native Burgundians, very attached to their family and conscious of the rich and cherished heritage they have received from their predecessors. It is this heritage that they wish to transmit to their children, from the work of the vine to the production of the wine, aware that each bunch of grapes remains a gift from nature, a gift from God.
Vincent’s heart is in Meursault, not far from its church tower, where he grew up and learned from his father and grandfather the winemaker’s craft. It is in this village that since 1990, with the aid of his wife, Aline, he has practiced his trade with passion. Vincent’s energy and determination allowed them to acquire multiple new parcels along the way, in addition to the family vines passed down to him from his parents.
Based in Meursault, on the Burgundian Côte de Beaune, the domaine’s holdings cover ten hectares, dispersed among 8 villages: Aloxe-Corton, Puligny-Montrachet, Monthélie, Auxey-Duresses, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune and on the little mountain of Corton. While the original vineyards have been in the family for generations, Vincent and Aline have developed the domaine’s holdings through the methodical acquisition of parcels. In this way, new appellations have gradually made their appearance on the list of wines over the years.
Everything begins in the vines, and Vincent loves his work there throughout the year: winter pruning, subsoiling treatments, working the soil in the spring, attaching the branches, pulling weeds, de-budding, vine training, replacing the dead rootstock, repairing stakes and wires, trimming the branches, green pruning if necessary, and sustainable spraying, remaining always at the vine’s disposal: a full itinerary of work to accomplish!
