Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Pucelles
2010
2010

This Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Pucelles was produced from Chardonnay vines with an age of nearly 45 years, sited in limestone soils with an eastern aspect, in the northern sector of the Pucelles parcel, due west of the fabled village of Puligny-Montrachet. The growing season and harvest in 2010 were superb for Chardonnay with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 14 months in barrel this is a wine of real complexity, richness and structure.
