Puligny Montrachet    Champs Gains      1er Cru 2010

Puligny-Montrachet Champs Gains
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Mix of clay and limestone

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

The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak during 14 months.

Tasting : Bright gold colour. Intense aromas of citrus fruit mixed with fresh honey and toasted "brioche". Delicate minerality. Hint of vanilla. Mineral attack with delicate notes of citrus fruit. Tight texture. Very pure fruit combination. Well-structured on well-balanced acidity. Long and precise finish.

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