Country: France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 100%
The vineyard: This Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne comes from very old vines of 70 years on average, located on the hillside at an altitude of approximately 250 meters and facing south-southeast. Located above the Chevalier-Montrachet, the climate of La Garenne is essentially composed of brown marls from oolitic limestone. Its altitude, its orientation and its terroir make this plot an exceptional terroir.

Vinification and Ageing: Hand-picked and sorted, the grapes are pressed whole. In the pure respect of the Burgundian tradition, alcoholic fermentation is carried out in barrels.
Ageing lasts 18 months on lees, including 10 months in oak (Burgundy piece).

Tasting Notes: This Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne authentically expresses the elegance and finesse of this exceptional terroir with a very precise style.
On tasting, tasty sensations of crunchiness and freshness recall aromas of white-fleshed fruits (pear).

Food Pairing: The aromatic richness of this cuvée requires pairing with delicate but also rich dishes (poultry in sauce, pan-fried veal with mushrooms, goat cheese).

The Grape
Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvelous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
