The Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru "Les Combettes" by Domaine Jacques Prieur is a prestigious label, born in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, between Meursault and Santenay. It is an area rich in history, which has its roots in the Middle Ages, when it was founded by the Cistercian Abbey of Maizières. In these lands, the Chardonnay reaches the highest levels of expression and gives a white of extraordinary charm and elegance, intense, complex and long-lived. It is excellent to be tasted in combination with shellfish, seafood pasta, baked fish, noble poultry, delicate white meat or medium-aged cheeses.
"Les Combettes", Jacques Prieur’s Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru, is produced by a historic domaine of Mersault, which covers a total of 21 hectares, 11 cultivated with Pinot Noir and 10 in Chardonnay, with plots in the Grand Cru of: Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Corton-Bressandes, Echézeaux, Clos Vougeot, Musigny, Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze and 14 other prestigious Premiers Crus. The label is born in a plot of about one and a half hectares. It is a beautiful vineyard located near the village of Puligny-Montrachet, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, with a beautiful sunny exposure facing south east.
