Site : Excellent situation in the heart of the Premiers Ccus of Puligny Montrachet. The vineyard is situated mid-slope, in short distance from the Hameau de Blagny.

Tasting : Bright gold colour. Delicated floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit and pear; Delicate minerality. Hint of vanilla. Well-structured. Tight texture. Very pure fruit combination. Well-balanced acidity. Long and precise finish. Score : 91 - Burghound - April 2017 - Score : 16.5/20 - Guide Bettane et Desseauve 2018
