“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.
Le Trezin is a Puligny Montrachet village Lieu Dit from the top of the incline, perched above the Premier Crus of Champ Gain & La Garenne and south of 1er Cru Sous le Puits. The last vineyard to be picked by Larue due to the cooler terrior. Always a tight style when young but delightful in the same way because of this. Five different plantings by the family over 1.27 hectatres, from mainly in the 50’s and 60’s, average vine age of 60 years old. Site is high in calcareous soils, the top soil littered with small white fractured stones. This is where the Oratory (small chapel for private worship) is situated, also the logo for Domaine Larue.
