    • Introduction

      In 1879, Puligny added its name to that of its more renowned Grand Cru: Montrachet. The "La Garenne" climat covers 9 hectares of vines situated just above"Champ Gain" on the upper parts of the hillside. The name of this parcel (Garenne or Varenne) was a term used in the Middle Ages to refer to a wooden area where hunting was reserved for the Lord. In September 2012, the press discovered that the United Kingdom was soon to have an heir when the Duchess of Cambridge - Kate Middleton - declined a glass of our Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Garenne".

      The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. Vinification lasts 4 weeks and takes place in French oak barrels (40-50% of which are new oak) in our hygrometry-controlled cellars at consistent, natural temperatures. The wines are stirred frequently in order to keep the wine in contact with the lees and then aged for 17 to 18 months. This enables them to retain excellent tension and aromatic complexity as well as a smooth, delicate palate.
