  • Vineyard Profile

    • According to traditions, it is said that the Lord of Puligny chose to share his land with his children and gave his legitimate son a parcel that later became Chevalier-Montrachet whilst his illegitimate son was gifted with three parcels: Bâtard-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criot-Bâtard-Montrachet. The Lord also gave his daughters a parcel known as Les Pucelles. The Faiveley family purchased this parcel in 2008 at the same time as the Bienvenues-BâtardMontrachet Grand Cru parcel.

  • Tasting Notes

    • The intensely aromatic nose discloses notes of tart fruits and roasted hazelnut. The palate is smooth and distinctive with excellent balance and a remarkably smooth finish found in only the finest white Burgundies. This wine evolves beautifully with bottle age.
