Region

The Cote d`Or is the overarching area encompassing the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. Burgundy`s finest wines come from within the Cote d`Or region, the whites made from Chardonnay and the reds from Pinot Noir.

Producer

The Domaine was founded in 1920 in Puligny-Montrachet and is now owned by Jean-Luc Pascal. It comprises 14 hectares of vineyards across four communes of Cote de Beaune, Auxey Duresses, Meursault, Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet. This small family domaine on the outskirts of the village of Puligny embodies meticulous traditional winemaking with minimal use of oak. They use the Guala Seal, an Italian three piece synthetic cork that has been successful as an alternative to cork particularly in Burgundy.
Tasting Notes
Jean Pascal runs his small family domaine in the village of Puligny by meticulous traditional winemaking. With small parcels of vineyards located across 4 communes in the Cote de Beaune and a reputation for excellent valued white burgundies, his Puligny Montrachet does not dissappoint. It is wonderfully elegant, not overly oaked and retains a lovely concentration of fruit, displaying butterscotch and hazelnuts notes, and finishing with complex flavours of brioche and cinnamon.
Food
A complex wine that will enhance seafood, cold meats and poultry.
