Winemaker: Paul Perarnau and Willy Roulendes

Appellation: Burgundy, France

Grape Varieties: Chardonnay

These grapes come from a parcel that faces east, which is situated below Puligny-
Montrachet, with some grapes coming from another parcel in Maranges. After being

harvested by hand, the grapes are pressed and then aged for one year in old oak
barrels. The wine was not racked nor stirred. The vines have been certified organic
for close to 20 years. Though it is listed under the simple Bourgogne appellation, it
has character, freshness, and balance that could have it mistaken for one of its
famous neighboring appellations! This wine would work great with such
Burgundian classics as gougères, escargot, and jambon persillé, but could work well
with white fish, veal, or a cheese course.

Willy and Paul are fast becoming two of the most exciting winemakers in Burgundy! Both are natives of Roussillon. Willy worked previously at Domaine de Montille in Puligny-Montrachet and was the head winemaker at Clos de Moulin aux Moines in Auxey-Durresses, while Paul worked previously at Oronce de Beler in Vosne-Romanée and also at Domaine Hauvette in Saint Rémy de Provence. They are négociants who only work with organic producers in their region. There are no additives used in the winemaking process, nothing artificial, and in some cases, no sulfites added during the winemaking process. The red wines are made with Pinot Noir and occasionally Gamay, while the whites are made with Chardonnay and Aligoté.
