  • Introduction

    • In 1879, Puligny added its name to that of its more renowned Grand Cru: Montrachet. The exceptional terroirs of Puligny-Montrachet offer optimum conditions for the Chardonnay grape variety. The “Champ Gain” climat covers 10 hectares of vines situated just below “La Garenne” on the upper parts of the hillside. The name of this parcel signifies “land reclamation on the forest”. The domaine has owned this climat since the 2014 vintage.
