Bordered by Meursault to the north and Chassagne-Montrachet to the south, the Puligny-Montrachet appellation is at its heart
of the world's best Chardonnay terroir, including the famous Montrachet. Located just above the "Champgains", on limestone

Immediately after the manual harvest, the grapes are pressed in whole bunches in a pneumatic press and then the juice is allowed to settle for 24 hours at 12°C. The must is then put directly into barrels in which the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out. The wine is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new.

The Prosper Maufoux Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru 'La Garenne' is rich with the typical aromas of La Garenne: buttery, lemony with notes of exotic fruits and spices and a hint of salt in the aftertaste. Do not drink this beautiful wine too cold - that is a shame. Ideal serving temperature is 12-14° This is of course a wine ideally suited to Shellfish / Oysters / Seafood, Fish, White meat and poultry. Try monkfish in turmeric and coriander
