Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Le Champ-Gain"

45 years old

The vines are located in the Puligny-Montrachet Village area, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. The Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gains is located just above Les Folatière. Puligny is also the place where you can find the most famous Grands Crus vineyards (Bienvenues-Bâtard Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet, Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet). Soil : clay and limestone. The parcel is located high on the slope. 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling of 12 hours at 13°C, then a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (25% of new oak). The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts.

The ageing is long on fine lees during 15 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit” day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

Very elegant wine with mineral notes and a well-integrated acidity. In mouth, long and fine.
