  • Home to some of the world's most extraordinary Chardonnays including the famous Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet is the 216 hectare geographical middleman of the white wine villages, bordered by Meursault to the north and by Chassagne-Montrachet to the south. Situated just above « Champgains », on marl and limestone soils, the vineyard of « La Garenne » benefits from an ideal south-easterly exposure. In ancient french 'La Garenne' means a wood surrounded by walls reserved for the lord of the manor, for the hunting of small game in particular rabbit (the origin of the expression 'lapin de garenne').
