Joseph Drouhin
The small village of Puligny Montrachet is one of the most famous in the world. There are records showing that the vineyards here date back as far as Roman times when a regional governor named Pullius owned the land. The Mont Rachez, or Scraggy Hill, is a small hill that sits between Puligny and Chassagne, and is home to some of the best and most famous Chardonnay vines in the world. There are some 235ha in total in Puligny, 100 of which are 1er Crus. Drouhin have parcels in many of these sites and this wine is a blend of the best village and cru sites. It ages for 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 25% are new. It is a remarkable place and a very fine wine indeed
