“Buttered pastry, peach, vanilla, and baking spice flavors fold into the creamy texture in this white. The spice notes build as this reaches a long finish. Drink now through 2024. 170
cases made.”

Tasting notes
With a nice pale yellow colour, our Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chalumeaux" 2014 has an intense nose of white fruits, vanilla and grilled hazelnut. The mouth is elegant and delicate, with wooden and vanilla-flavoured notes. This wine reveals a lot of freshness with a beautifull persistant and iodic finish.

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.
