Bordered by Meursault to the north and Chassagne-Montrachet to the south, the Puligny-Montrachet appellation is the heart of the world's best Chardonnay terroir, including the famous Montrachet. Located just above the "Champgains", on limestone and marl soil, the "La Garenne" vineyard benefits from an ideal south-east exposure. At that time, a "garenne" was a forest surrounded by walls, owned by the lords for hunting small game and more specifically rabbits, hence the expression "lapin de Garenne".

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

The Prosper Maufoux Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru 'La Garenne' is rich with the typical aromas of La Garenne: buttery, lemony with notes of exotic fruit and herbs and a touch of salt in the aftertaste. Be sure not to drink this beautiful wine too cold - that's a shame. The 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
