Grown on soils of clay & limestone. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, using naturally occurring yeast and aged 18 months in 1, 2 and 3 year old French barrique. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This wine is not what you'd expect from such a hot and dry year, yet the concentration of the grapes concentrated the acidity, too, and the result is a wine of tension and power that should age exceptionally well. No one will blame you, however, for opening a few bottles early. Unlike the white premier cru from Ponsot in this appellation, this is 100% Chardonnay from the 0.6ha Dujac holding. The wine is fermented in tank and aged in used casks. In 2020, the wine took me by surprise with its vibrant, lemony fruit and minerality.

The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Monts Luisants Blanc is excellent, delivering scents of pear, freshly baked bread and citrus oil, followed by a medium-bodied, taut and chalky palate built around a bright spine of acidity.
