Puligny-Montrachet is the 216 hectare geographical middleman of the white wine villages, bordered by Meursault to the north and by Chassagne-Montrachet to the south with which it harbours 5 of the 6 white Grands Crus in Burgundy. Puligny-Montrachet « Les Truffières » is situated high up on the slope just below the hamlet of Blagny. As the name suggests this vineyard was once a truffle-bed and now the wines it produces are equally sought after. The wine is rich and powerful without letting go of its remarkable finesse. Packed with ripe exotic fruits and a buttery fatness, the acidity balances the wine and keeps it steely. One for the cellar.
