Description

Les Grand Classiques or the essential Burgundy wines...
A reflection of their terroir, the village appellations and premier cru villages from this range are revealed. Their authenticity and their assertive character are renewed crop after crop thanks to a deep respect for the ancestral Burgundian expertise.

Appellation: Appellation village located between Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet is part of the prestigious Côte des Blancs.

Former cultivated fields («gains» meaning arable land) located between 300 and 400 meters above sea level, the «Champ Gain» vines overlook the Puligny vineyards.

Soil: Clay, limestone

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay

Vinification: 

Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

Vinification: The grapes are destalked and then pressed ready for vinification in new 500-litre oak barrels.

Ageing: Ageing in barrels that have seen two previous vintages, for 6 to 12 months.

Tasting:  Its bright golden robe with haloed green reflections offers a bouquet that combines hawthorn, ripe grapes, almond paste, hazelnut, amber, lemongrass and green apple. There are also aromas of honey, dairy products (butter, warm croissant) and minerals (flint). It is on the palate that its balance and aromatic complexity unfold.

Food pairing:  This Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru will prove admirable with poultry as with seared veal, foie gras, lobster and crayfish, and grilled or fried sea fish. Goat’s cheese, Reblochon and soft paste bloomy rind cheeses such as brie de Meaux will be good companions.
