Puligny-Montrachet is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France which was established in 1937. The production of both still red and still white wines is permitted although white wines dominate the production.
The vineyards closest to the village of Puligny-Montrachet take the village level appellation, but as you move west towards the hameau of Blagny many of the plots are rated as Premier Cru. Close to Blagny the terroir particularly suits the production of the red wines.
Reds are made from Pinot Noir supplemented by optional small additions of white grapes and white wines are normally produced from Chardonnay which thrives here, but Pinot Blanc is also permitted.
