The wine produced on this appellation is said to be one of the greatest white wines in the world. The name of Puligny originated in the Gallo-Roman times, when a certain Puliniacus creates his field, about 2000 years ago. The limestone gives the Chardonnay a unique subtlety enhanced by a South-East exposure and slopes that help drainage. The white wines of Puligny offers a set of very distinguished noble aromas: almond paste, fern, exotic fruits, amber, white flowers. In the mouth, acidity is rather unobtrusive, leaving a soft expression and an intense impressive persistence. The best climate of the appellation are Les Folatières, La Pucelle and Les Caillerets. Les Folatières produce wines rich and bold. La Pucelle is contiguous to Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet, and Les Caillerets are next to le Montrachet. These two climates produce wines full of finesse and remarkably characterized by intense aromas of honey.
