The region is best known for producing white wines from the Chardonnay grape, although some Pinot Noir is grown (only two hectares) and relatively hard to find. Like other neighboring villages in search of fame (and of course fortune), in 1879 Puligny added its name to the famous Grand Cru vineyard, "Montrachet".

After working alongside his father for several years, Antoine has been in charge of this prestigious property since 2007. Although Francois has been enjoying his retirement for several years, he can still be found almost daily in the vineyards and cellar to assist his son. With the arrival of Antoine, the style of the wines has changed slightly. A few minor changes during winemaking have made them more accessible and refined, without losing character. Antoine prefers to work with finer lies than his father. Furthermore, he bottles the wine in April/May of the second year following the harvest. These are just details, but the quality of the wines has increased further as a result.
