1er Cru Les Pucelles - Récolte du Domaine

In the past, the Lord of Puligny-Montrachet had given this vineyard to his daughters .

After a cold and dry start to the year, temperatures rose quickly at the end of March, triggering a rapid resumption of the growing cycle. A few morning frosts impacted part of the vineyard at the end of April but without major damage. The flowering period takes place in a few days at the beginning of June in superb weather. The summer is hot and sunny but delivers some welcome storm rain to help the plant enter the veraison stage. The harvest takes place at the beginning of September with ideal weather and impeccable health quality of the grapes.


A single vine belonged to our Domaine in 1955. Which other plot can better explain the terroir of Puligny-Montrachet? The soil is light and rocky, and little water-springs protect it during summer. It's a very sophisticated wine and a former Domaine Leflaive property.
