Puligny Montrachet    Champs Gains      1er Cru 2004

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 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. Vinified and matured in oak casks during 12 months.

Tasting : Gold colour. Very pure and floral fragrances (acacia) mixed with aromas of paled fleshed fruit (pear) and a hint of minerality and enhanced by a beautiful vanilla note. Elegant, well-balanced. Beautiful aromatic combination underlined by a very fine minerality. Well-structured with a long aftertaste.

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