About:  Joseph Drouhin was a daring and enterprising young man who came from the Chablis region. In 1880, at the age of 22, he settled in Beaune and founded there his own wine company. His aim was to offer wines of great quality that would bear his name.

About:  Site: the middle part of the Côte de Beaune is famous of its great wines. Puligny-Montrachet, as one of the villages of the Côte des Blancs, is one of these celebrated appellations.

History & tradition: made famous by the illustrious Montrachet Grand Cru vineyard, Puligny has an ancient origin. Puligny may have belonged to a certain Pullius during the Roman empire. His estate was called « Pulliniacus » from which is derived the name Puligny (i.e. the property of Pullius, a fairly common name at the time).

Soil: limestone. Mixture of ochre earth and small pebbles.

Wine making method:  

Supply: this wine comes from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications.

Harvest: grapes harvested by hands in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting is proceeded.

Vinification: slow pressing in a pneumatic press. The juice of the last press is separated from the free run-juice. The juice is transferred into wine barrel after a little settling.  

Ageing: the alcoholic fermentation as the malolactic and the ageing are being processed in oak barrels. The proportion of new barrels is around 20%.
The ageing lasts between 14 to 16 months.

Origin of the wood: oak grown in French high forest.

Tasting Notes:  

A wine of great finesse, distinguished and elegant. The colour is pure and bright, with light glints of white gold. The aromas evoke trees in bloom and white flesh fruit, like white peaches. With age, the aromas evolve towards almond and lightly grilled dried fruit. On the palate, there is a sensation of fresh silkiness. Long and persistent in the aftertaste, ending on an exceptional wealth of flavours, both floral and fruity.
