This comes from vines which are nearly 60 years old, situated at the heart of the slope, just beneath First Growth Les Pucelles. The vines lie beside a path up which Puligny’s cows used to climb (La Rue aux Vaches), on their way to grazing above the woods on the plateau. The soils are quite different to those in Chassagne – blacker, more humus-rich and marly. This is greeny-golden, with lively, vibrant aromas. Palate is full bodied, with attractive core of fruitiness, and a crisp finish, bringing balance, with gentle, refreshing length (for drinking 2018-2023+).
