1er Cru Champ Gain
One area in the central Côte de Beaune is devoted to the production of Burgundy’s great white wines including Puligny-Montrachet which is
incontestably one of its most glorious examples…
Puligny’s soil is almost exclusively given over to the cultivation of Chardonnay grapes. The word “terroir” rarely carries the importance it does here; a difference of just a few metres is sufficient to create various nuances in the wines.
This climat stretches over big parcels that are long rather than large.Its name comes from ancient French gaaing, gaïn "pasture land, arable land". These were thus meadows or cultivated fields before vines were planted there.
Grape variety: chardonnay
Soils: rich, very stony and shallow.
