Puligny Montrachet    Champs Gains      1er Cru 2009

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 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 14 months.

Tasting : Bright gold colour. Intense aromas of citrus fruit mixed with a subtle mineral note enhanced by a delicate vanilla note. Mineral attack with delicate notes of crystallized citrus.Tight texture. Well-structured on well-balanced acidity. Long and generous finish.

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