Puligny-Montrachet Champs Gains
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Mix of clay and limestone

Site : Excellent situation in the heart of the Premiers Crus of Puligny Montrachet. The vineyard is situated mid-slope, in short distance from the Hameau de Blagny.

The Vintage 2003 : Exceptional due to a warm summer which incited an early harvest before the end of august. Low yields. Outstanding concentration and fully matured during the harvest. Vinified and matured in oak casks during 10 months.

Tasting : Pale gold . Beautiful white floral fragrances (hawthorn) mixed with aromas of very ripe summer fruit( peach) enhanced by a nice vanilla note. Elegant, delicate, beautiful aromatic complexity. Harmonious, well-balanced, generous and with a long aftertaste.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with fish (salmon), seafood and some goat cheeses.
