Domaine de Montille Buys Château de Puligny-Montrachet

I found out about this a few months ago at VinItaly as one of my producers there had just been to the domaine and chatting with Etienne had learned of the purchase.  But because it wasn't public yet and the deal wasn't signed, I wasn't able to talk about it.

This is big news.  Maybe not for the end consumer but to do a deal like this in this economic climate is pretty hard.  Chapeau to Etienne for making it happen.

And for all the champions of low alcohol, high acid, long lasting wines, it is only going to get better.
