The lieu-dit Les Levrons, is located north of Puligny Montrachet, below the lieu-dit classified 1er cru Les Champs Canets, on a calcareous-clayey soil, with a strong presence of clay in the lower part of the parcel. The upper part, on the other hand, is particularly rocky and draining. The hand-picked grapes are brought directly to the press. The pressing operation is gentle and slow, in order to extract the best juices from the bunches. After a light racking, the must is placed in French oak barrels (of which 20-25% are new), where the alcoholic fermentation takes place (starting from indigenous yeasts), then the malolactic fermentation. At the end of 12-16 months of refinement, the first racking is done, then a light clarification. Bottling will take place at the end of the second winter following the harvest. Gold color tending to greenish, with pale yellow nuances. On the nose, aromas of freshly blossomed white flowers dominate, which then evolve into notes of green almond and hazelnut. In the mouth it is a pleasant, lively and elegant wine. Generally less fat than its neighbor Meursault, it is often finer and more refined.
