Jean Pascal’s daughter-in-law Alexandra has been making the wine here for well over a decade, during which time she has overseen a steady and impressive upward trajectory in the quality and reputation of this small family Domaine.
After spending 10 months on its lees in oak barrel (20% new), this Puligny is clean and intense, with a lovely buttery finish. Good now and for a further 18 months.
French still white wine from Cote de Beaune in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or (Bourgogne) France, made with Chardonnay.
The Domaine started with Jean Pascal who, after working at Domaine Leflaive, acquired some parcels with his wife in the early 1950s. In 1975, his son Jean Luc, joined his parents, and together they formed Domaine Jean Pascal & Fils. Their 15 hectares of vines spread over 4 towns in Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Auxey-Duresses. In the early 2000s, Yann (Jean Luc’s son) joined the team and is now taking care of the vineyards while his wife Alexandra is responsible for winemaking and trade.
