Puligny-Montrachet Les Rechaux 2018
A Wine That
shows another side to Puligny. The winemaker never uses sulphites, so instead of the more rigid style you might be used to, this is a little softer—a little friendlier—but with all the classic salinity and that mouthwatering mineral crunch.

Where and How?
This is organically farmed Chardonnay from the parcel of villages Puligny-Montrachet named 'Les Reuchaux,' which is situated just a stone's throw from the hallowed ground of the premiers crus.
The juice was whole bunch pressed and fermented naturally. The wine was then aged on the lees in barrels for long periods of time without battonage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and without sulphites.
The Winemaker: Renaud Boyer
Tucked away in Meursault lies a humble cellar of a quiet, thoughtful man named Renaud. Renaud does things a little differently.
This is one of the most prestigious Burgundian villages; the wines of which reach some of the highest prices in the world. The norm here is to create wines of a certain style; a style which often utilises significant additions of sulphur to give them a straightjacket, precise feel.
Renaud, however, didn’t want to follow this recipe. His first vintage was in 2005, but after meeting Alsatian natural wine guru Patrick Meyer, he decided to start making wines without sulphur. He has never looked back.
