Domaine Faiveley: Great Burgundy wines in Nuits-Saint-Georges since 1825

Puligny-Montrachet

1er Cru "Les Referts"

This village, situated between Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, harbours exceptional terroirs for raising Chardonnay. Vines have been cultivated here since the twelfth century, but it was in 1879 that Puligny added the name of its most famous grand cru ‘Montrachet’ to its name.

The producer we work with entrusts us with high-quality musts which we vinify and raise in our cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges, therefore benefitting from the same technical means and the same attention as our other Côte d’Or wines.

The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 13 to 15 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which can vary depending on the vintage, represents on average one third of the cuvée. The barrels come from a high-quality barrel maker and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

Our Tasting Notes:

The nose is very pleasant and charms with its both subtle and enchanting character. There are citrus, floral and dried fruit aromas. This wine is very full on the palate and strikes a balance between smoothness and liveliness. A harmonious wine with long-lasting aromas and flavours.
