Description

Home of some of the world's most extraordinary Chardonnays including the famous Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet is the geographical middleman of the white wine villages, bordered by Meursault to the north and by Chassagne-Montrachet to the south. The vineyard of Puligny Montrachet << Sous les Puits >> has a south-easterly exposure and is situated at the top of the hill of Blagny, just above " La Garenne ", near a source, hence the name of "Sous le Puits" ("Under the Well").
