“Wines from Larue possess purity, energy, and an invariable minerality derived from the predominant limestone soils of Saint-Aubin. The Larues are meticulous and precise in all aspects of winegrowing and winemaking and their wines reflect these qualities. These wonderful white Burgundies have the additional benefit of being approachable young, although they are tightly wound and can always benefit from a few extra years of bottle age.”
Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant.
Meaning ‘under the well’ the vines were planted from 1951 to 1982, an average age of 55 years old across the parcels. Sous Le Puits is made from 5 different parcels spanning 1.8 hectares that Domaine Larue own in this 1er Cru which borders the Meursault appellation in the North of the Puligny AOP, right at the top of the hill of Puligny-Montrachet, East facing. The site has deeper clay-limestone soil than the mid slope Cru’s, plus it’s is a little colder due to it’s slope position.
Pressed, settled then moved to barrel by gravity. Fermented in barrel (20% new) then elevage on lees for 12 months then in tank for a further 6 months as the parcels are blended together, total of 18 months before bottling.
“Well-rounded and voluptuous, this cuvee will accompany a pike-perch with beurre blanc sauce” Winemaker.
