This rich and powerful wine is the result of the blending of two Premiers Crus from the slopes of Puligny. Fresh almonds and white flowers dominate the bouquet. The round and rich palate displays aromas of dry fruits, which are accentuated by the elegant minerality of this Premier Cru. A wine which will best reveal its character if served with fatty and firm types of fish in a tasty sauce.
