Corkbuzz Online | Burgundy Spotlight: Puligny-MontrachetJuly 23 2021 | 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Join Corkbuzz for a series of new classes focusing on individual villages of the Côte d'Or.
Puligny was one of two villages (along with Chassagne) which gained permission in 1879 to hyphenate the name of its most famous vineyard, Montrachet, to its own. The reputation of Puligny-Montrachet is based around its four Grands Crus. Montrachet labels often boast a noble, triumphant ‘Le’ in front of its name, lest you dare confuse it with any lesser wine. It has much to be proud of, with many considering Montrachet to be the greatest white wine in the world. At its best it has an intensity, complexity and elegance that make you wonder how such a wine could be made from mere grapes. We'll be delving into the history, law, and individual parcels of land that make the wines of Puligny-Montrachet so special amongst collectors and enthusiasts. Expect a deep focus on lieu-dits, climats, Premier Cru vineyards, Grand Cru vineyards, and the most iconic (and some lesser known- but need to know) producers.
It can be helpful to have an overall understanding of the region prior to class. You can watch our Burgundy Basics class recording to prepare.
