Bitouzet’s lone Puligny-Montrachet is produced from a 0.6-hectare 1955 planting in the lieu-dit Les Levrons, which lies just below premier cru Les Referts on the slope in the northern part of the village. Francois crafts a Puligny of impeccable, crystalline clarity from this site, with more filigree, citrus- tinged fruit than his Meursaults, but with an equally authoritative, if less weighty, undercarriage of earth-derived minerality. It spends 16 months in 20-25% new barrels during its élevage.
