This comes from vines which are nearly 60 years old, situated at the heart of the slope, just beneath Premier Cru Les Pucelles. The vines lie beside a path up which Puligny’s cows used to climb (La Rue aux Vaches) on their way to pasture above the woods. The soils are quite different to those in Chassagne – blacker, more humus-rich and marly. In colour, this 2015 is lively green-golden, with fresh, ripe apricot aromas. Palate is richly built, with creamy texture, ample fleshiness, gentle acidity and delicious length (for drinking 2017-2022).
