Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Champ Gain"

Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Champ Gain"

  • The vintage
    • 2019 is a fresh and well-balanced vintage characterised by extreme weather conditions (frost spells, heatwave). Volumes are low although the quality is outstanding. The harvests began on Monday 9 September and came to an end on the 21 September. The white wines are powerful and concentrated yet balanced out by a crisp acidity. The aromatic profile exudes notes of freshly cut pear.

    • Introduction

      In 1879, Puligny added its name to that of its more renowned Grand Cru: Montrachet. The exceptional terroirs of Puligny-Montrachet offer optimum conditions for the Chardonnay grape variety. The "Champ Gain" climat covers 10 hectares of vines situated just below "La Garenne" on the upper parts of the hillside. The name of this parcel signifies "land reclamation on the forest". The domaine has owned this climat since the 2014 vintage.

      The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. Vinification lasts 4 weeks and takes place in French oak barrels (40-50% of which are new oak) in our cellars at consistent, natural temperatures and hygrometry. The wines are stirred frequently in order to keep the wine in contact with the lees and then aged for 17 to 18 months. This enables them to retain excellent tension and aromatic complexity as well as a smooth, delicate palate.
