Of the over 600 Premier Crus in greater Burgundy there are perhaps only three that we don't import that I would really would love in our portfolio.
 
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St-Jacques is one - to date we just haven't found the right maker. The other two are far rarer. Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Gaudichots is the second.  I have only seen two makers and tasted the wine a couple of times.
 
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Demoiselles is the third. This 0.6 hectare white vineyard lies immediately to the right (north) of Montrachet. Here there are just three owners. Jasper Morris MW says "The tiny Puligny-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is both very rare and potentially of exceptional quality, so highly sought-after."
 
It is notably stony with a little more topsoil than Chevalier-Montrachet above. Indeed part of the vineyard owned by the powerful negociants Jadot and Latour was reclassified as Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru in the late 1930's (today, they still use the name Les Demoiselles on their labels).

I am delighted to offer Les Demoiselles from one of the three owners, Au Pied du Mont Chauve. These vines were originally owned by Bernard Colin but were purchased by the Picard family (owner of Au Pied du Mont Chauve and Chateau Chassagne-Montrachet) in 2007. Their parcel is in the prime location at the south end, right alongside Montrachet.
 
I tasted the 2014's from Au Pied du Mont Chauve when I was in Burgundy late last year. The wines were great but to be honest I thought the Demoiselles was a little expensive. However, I have had a chance to reflect on this and appreciate that this really is a special vineyard, not unlike Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Dent de Chien, except even harder to find. The location, rarity and quality justifies its premium over other Premier Crus.
 
Needless to say with such a small appellation production is tiny. I have secured the last available bottles of the wonderful 2014 from Au Pied du Mont Chauve.
