One area in the central Côte de Beaune is devoted to the production of Burgundy’s great white wines including Puligny-Montrachet which is incontestably one of its most glorious examples…
Puligny’s soil is almost exclusively given over to the cultivation of Chardonnay grapes. The word “terroir” rarely carries the importance it does here; a difference of just a few metres is sufficient to create various nuances in the wines.
In the northern part of the appellation, just bordering on Saint-Aubin, the climat "Le Trezin" is located at the top of the hill, in a cool area.
Its name refers to a nearby spring or stream.
