Far grander than its humble appellation might suggest.

In essence a “baby” Puligny-Montrachet. Les Parties comes from the southern end of this illustrious commune and it is as characteristically fine and mineral as the much more expensive wines that bear its name.

A Bourgogne Blanc, but made with fruit from a 38 are plot very close to Puligny with deep clay and stoney soils. It was made very much in the style of its grander sibling, with half of the blend aged in oak. The vines are part of the new estate bought by Brigitte Berthelemot in 2018 which has doubled the size of the domaine to 15 hectares, and over the next few vintages we will start to see some exciting new wines from them.

Berthelemot is a young domaine, created as recently as 2006, as a result of the merging of the mature holdings of the Jean Garaudet and Yves Darviot estates. As well as initial acquisitions in Beaune, Pommard, Monthélie and Meursault, in 2012, the estate purchased established plots in Puligny, Chassagne, and again in Meursault to meet the demand for its white wines.

The success of the domaine is down to the hard work and talent of its founder, Brigitte Berthelemot, together with her estate manager and winemaker, Marc Cugney. The vines are planted in limestone soils in very good sites at a density of around 10,000 per hectare, they are kept in top condition, and the team responds quickly to regular analyses of the soil and the vines in order to assess appropriate cultivation methods using the bare minimum of herbicides and phytosanitary treatments.

Although each harvest differs in regards to the degree of maturity and the levels of sugar, acidity and tannins within the grapes, the goal is always to produce the best wine possible reflecting the nature of the land and the characteristics of the year.

Perfect with potted shrimps on toast, or a creamy chicken and mushroom pie.
