Puligny Montrachet Les Enseignères caught my attention back in the mid-1990s when Coche-Dury acquired a piece of this now-illustrious village vineyard.
Les Enseignères is, for non-collectors, a relatively unknown vineyard, located just below Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet. While producing tremendous wines, it is perhaps somewhat over the top to claim that this vineyard is near grand cru quality-wise. It does, however, have some very fine attributes that I cherish and admire.
It is indeed a very fine village terroir that can measure up to some of the better 1ers crus in Puligny, although it perhaps struggles to compare with the top 1ers crus.
But let’s take a closer look
Les Enseignères is located directly below Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet, but to be honest the location of Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet is somewhat blurred to many, other than understanding it is located next to the better-known – and perhaps more consistent – Batard-Montrachet.
While Les Enseignères is unknown to many, it is a surprisingly large vineyard, covering 9.12 ha, making it significantly larger than the neighbouring Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet (3.68 ha).
