Louis Violland Puligny-Montrachet 2017

Technical Information

Region – Cote d’Or, Burgundy

Soil – Limestone-clay.

Grape Varieties – 100% Chardonnay.

Harvest & Vinification – The grapes were harvested by hand. The grapes are broken to liberate the juices trapped in the berries, and then pressed with a pneumatic press.  The alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak barrels (30% new oak).

Aging – Aging on lees lasts for 13 months and before bottling the wine is lightly filtered and fined which gives the wine a shining clarity.

Vegan – yes

Tasting notes

Pale gold color with silvery highlights. On the nose, pleasant nose with floral aromas, yellow fruit and toasted notes. A fresh and frank attack, a round mid-palate with pronounced floral aromas and notes of hazelnut and toasted bread at the end of the mouth. A beautiful aromatic persistence. (Louis Violland)

Food pairing

Sole fillet with white butter, fish blanquette, queen bites, crayfish casserole.
