Temperature control (18-20 °C), duration of the fermentation 8 to 10 weeks.

This unctuous and delicate Premier Cru from Puligny-Montrachet, a neighbour of Meursault - Les Charmes, combines strength and finesse. All fatty types of fish, turbot, John Dory, catfish as well as creamy or beurre monté sauces will bring out its elegant roundness. Its complexity asks for rich gourmand dishes. Cellar it for five to seven years in order to give it time to develop.
