Estate Notes

Puligny-Montrachet is one of the Côte de Beaune’s most famous villages. And while the village itself may be rather unexciting it is regarded as the home of Chardonnay, a reputation based on the general consensus that the world’s best dry white wines are produced here.

Génot-Boulanger's 2011 white Burgundy from La Garenne vineyard highlights why. All the minerality and concentration you would expect of a top class Puligny-Montrachet.

François Délaby-Génot made enormous progress in crafting benchmark Burgundy, recently completing a new phase of rebuilding and expansion. The last few years saw a huge leap forward in the quality of produce, yet despite its burgeoning reputation, its wines still represent excellent Burgundian value-for-money. And now since Guillaume Lavollée has taken over direction of the winemaking of this, one of the largest private domains in the Côte d’Or, the red wines have regained their quality and finesse, comparable to the estate’s magnificent white wines. The vineyards are now in process of biodynamic conversion. 

Reviews

Opulent aromatic white fruits, biscuity and buttery, with fine mineral base. Discreet front palate, fresh and focused, with fine ripe depth, balanced fatness and acidity, long development and fresh mineral finish.
