Maison Champy Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gains 2011
Full-bodied, vigorous and aromatic wine with a touch of earthiness which is an exceptionally pure expression of the premiers crus of this commune. The rich Chardonnay fruit and notes of toasty oak carry into the lengthy finish.
Bright golden yellow colour with light hints of green. Very intense nose with floral and exotic fruits notes. In the palate, the attack is sleek and shiny. The wine is very concentrated. The final is extremely pure, elegant and well balanced.
In central Côte de Beaune lies an area dedicated to the production of great white wines, of which Puligny-Montrachet is, without contest, one of the most glorious examples. The soil is made of clay and pebbled limestone, which drains well and warms up quickly.
