Chardonnay | Grand Cru wijngaard | 

The name of this Grand Cru vineyard in Puligny-Montrachet may well explain itself, like the names of the other parcels, by its situation on the hillside. It is – quite simply - the highest.

If we refer to medieval society and its hierarchy, this parcel being of the highest placement means it merits the Chevalier title, which is derived from the medieval Latin term caballarius, or "esquire".

Chevalier-Montrachet is often considered one of the ultimate references of Chardonnay in the world, the finest of the three principal Grand Crus of this magic hill, along with Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet.

Our piece of 0.23 hectare is situated on soils with a moderately granular size, dominated by limestone with some ferruginous clay. This mineral wine has spicy notes with great complexity that blends plumpness with nervousness. It demands time and doesn't generally blossom until it has aged five to seven years in bottle.
