Puligny-Montrachet, situated to the south of Meursault and to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, shares with Chassagne a handful of the greatest white wine vineyards in the world.

The vineyards are centred around Puligny and a part of the Blagny hamlet, on a gentle, east facing slope, about 230 to 390 m above sea level. The stoney clay and chalk soil, drains well and warms through easily. Chardonnay is the only grape variety used for the white wines.

Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of growers with whom it holds purchase agreements based on the quality of the harvest each year. The Puligny Montrachet is vinified and then aged 12-15 in barrels.

The wines of Puligny Montrachet are generally characterised by greater firmness and depth than those of Meursault, and by greater refinement and delicacy than those of Chassagne. They are characterised by very distinctive aromas : almond, fern, exotic fruit, amber and white flowers. His acidity in the mouth is rather subtle. They can be kept between 8 and 12 years. These great wines are destined to honour Haute Cuisine as wonderful shellfish cooked in bouillon, creamed and poached fish, poultry liver pâtés. Also with the tastes of very strong-smelling cheeses : Munster and mature Comté.

This wine will certainly improve up to 5 to 8 years in a good cellar (good temperature and humidity).
