Description
  • 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. Located just next to the vineyard "Les Truffières", almost at the top of the hill, the vines "Les Chalumaux" grow high up on limestone and marl soil with an ideal south-easterly exposure, catching as much sunlight as the day-time permits. These vineyards have belonged to the Chalumeau family or be exploited by it, hence its name.

  • Tasting Note
    Of a beautiful pale yellow colour, our Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru « Les Chalumeaux » 2016 reveals intense aromas of acacia flower, grilled almond and vanilla. The mouth is ample with woody fade. We note a lot of freshness and a beautiful persistence.

    • Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chalumeaux" 2016 - Jancis Robinson - January 2018 - 17+/20

      Dry, fibrous palate with intense fruit - compact and taut and actually quite heavy. Lovely spicy oak element on the finish. Broad, balanced, lengthy and classic. (RH) Drink 2019-2029

      Pale colour (...) This is quite stylish, fine boned, with a nice tingling finish. (tasted prior to bottling)

    • Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chalumaux" 2014 - Wine Spectator - November 2016 - 92/100

      Buttered pastry, peach, vanilla and baking spice flavors fold into the creamy texture, with spice notes building as this reaches the long finish. Drink now through 2024. 170 cases made. - Bruce Sanderson (USA)
