STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

For many, the village of Puligny-Montrachet produces the most perfection expression of Chardonnay, wines of great richness and harmony. In the heart of this hallowed land lies the plot of Les Folatières, considered by many to be Puligny’s finest Premier Cru vineyard. There are two separate plots here managed by producer Jean-Louis Chavy. The first is in the steepest and stoniest part, which contributes excellent acidity and structure. The other is from lower down the slope where the soil is richer, giving greater concentration and depth. Here is a wine to leave you in no doubt as to why Chardonnay is still the world's most popular white grape
