In the words of Burgundy authority, Clive Coates MW, "Puligny-Montrachet is the greatest white wine commune on earth". Although smaller than its highly reputable adjacent neighbors Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault, Puligny has four of Burgundies six white Grand Crus. While Le Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet are shared with Chassagne-Montrachet, Chavalier-Montrachet and Beinvenies-Batard-Montrachet lie wholly within the village. Most of it's 13 premier crus roughly continue north east towards Meursault and frequently reflect the style of the grand cru which they aligned in terms of elevation. For instance, those adjacent and continuing from Batard, such as Les Lucelles, Claviollon, Les Perrieres, Les Combettes, and Les Referts, exhibit a similar rich, plump and exotic style and are less like those further up the hillside which are level with Chevalier and Le Montrachet. Most of the villages produce is contracted to negociants in Beaune, however the few growers who are based in the village, Louis Carillon, Leflaive, and Etienne Sauzet are perhaps the finest.
