88-90The Wine Advocate

...palate is elegant on the entry, that leitmotif of bitter lemon coming through, good density with a brisk finish...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Les Champ Gain

Les Champ Gain is a 32-Acre acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Puligny-Montrachet appellation of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is up the slope and west of many of the appellation’s Premier Cru vineyards, and in fact wasn’t farmed as a vineyard until the mid-20th century, when the land was cleared of rocks and scrub. The elevation is 300 to 380 meters.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
