Puligny-Montrachet Cuvée Bernard Clerc
Côte de Beaune
The first aromatic notes reveal already a fine Burgundy wine, with a floral and complex nose (almond, white pepper). Mouth with tension and precision, with a solid backbone that ageing will structure and reveal.
Springtime salad with shrimps, aioli, chicken breast in creamy mustard sauce with mushrooms.
This cuvée comes from a donation in 2017 by Mr. Bernard Clerc, retired vigneron from Puligny-Montrachet where he owned a significant wine estate. The traditional generosity of the Burgundians is thus clearly as alive as ever in the 21st century.
The cuvée comes from two plots in the climat “les Reuchaux”, on the Meursault side of the village, the vines being planted in 1968 and 1969. Together they comprise 18.96 ares. This is the first donation of vines in Puligny-Montrachet for the Hospices de Beaune.
