Production area

Puligny-Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune, is an appellation that covers a surface area of 211,46 ha. It includes 17 single vineyards classified as Premier Cru that represent 98,18 ha. The commune of Puligny-Montrachet also produces 5 Grands Crus. 10,69 hectares are used for “Champ Gain”.

Origins

The “Champ Gain” is located on the upper (and therefore well-exposed) slopes, with a predominantly limestone terroir giving the wine a fine balance between minerality and opulence.

Varietal

100% Chardonnay

Vinification and maturing

The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine was aged on the lees for 10 months with occasional stirring.

Tasting notes

NOSE : 
Very intense, with notes of ripe, backed fruit.

Full and round, centered around an omnipresent fruitiness.

Food and wine pairing

This wine will be perfect paired with refined dishes such poultry in sauce, veal fried with mushrooms, foie gras, lobster, crawfish, and grilled or fried sea-fish. On the cheese-board, its natural allies are goat cheeses, Reblochon, or soft-centred cheeses like Brie de Meaux.
