This Chardonnay has pale golden hues in the glass, with zesty citrus aromas. It is generous on the palate with spicy undertones and a lingering finish. Delicious and complex, it is difficult to find a white wine quite like it outside of Burgundy.

In comparison to the typically rounder wines from Chassagne and the more perfumed wines of Meursault , Puligny-Montrachet is famed for producing wines with great mineral influence and firm structure. The vineyards here benefit from a continental climate, ensuring the fruit retains excellent acidity and producing age-worthy wines. The Chardonnay vines grow on limestone and clay soils, lending structure and finesse to the finished wine.

David Moret is a micro-négociant who makes wines in his small cellar in Beaune. He studied oenology, but then went on to sell winemaking supplies before finally deciding to make wines himself. With no family-owned vines, he bought grapes to vinify, purchasing his first barrels in the late 1990s and starting his own label in 2000. Since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from top growers, to vinify in his cellars. Fermented using indigenous yeasts, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration after the natural settling that occurs during their period in oak. David uses 20% new oak for his Villages wines and up to 40% new oak for his Premiers and Grands Crus.
