The Premier Cru vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet, are famous for their exceptionally high and consistent quality of the wines produced. They stretch across the upper half of Puligny's slope from Meursault to Chassagne.

« Les Pucelles» is situated next to Batard-Montrachet and is considered to be the most "refined" terroir of Puligny. The soil is not very deep, with little stones, well drained, and is therefore able to warm easily. The soil is mainly composed or clay and chalk.

The bouquet, allying well-bred fruit notes of almonds and minerals, is repeated on the palate with a long finish.This great wine matches all kinds of food : European, Asian, good quality products overall.

This wine can be easily kept 8-12 years and even more in perfect temperature and moisture conditions.
