Le Montrachet is shared by the communes of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The vineyard terroir is very chalky and stony for perfect drainage but has the potential to overheat in the sunny, south–southeast exposure. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months.
This complex, powerful, full-bodied wine has aromas and flavors of honey, toast, white flowers and white-fleshed fruit. It will develop favorably in the bottle for 15 to 20 years.
Serve with haute cuisine dishes such as shellfish à la nage, fish and pastas in cream sauce and pâtés.
