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 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in French oak for 12 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour with green tinges. Aromas of peach and fresh honey enhanced by a delicate vanilla note. Well-balanced and well-structured. Subtle minerality. Delicate oak note. Good persistence.

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