Winemaker Notes

Champs Gains is the second largest Puligny premier cru and sits above Folatières high up on the Mont Rachet hill at an elevation of 1200 feet. Altitude and meager soils deliver a wine with a lean and mineral profile. The name Champ Gain derives from a "field" that has been won or regained.

This Puligny-Montrachet is typified by aromas and flavors of green apple and lemon and tend to be tauter and firmer on the palate compared to wines from neighboring villages. Aging in a small percentage of new French oak barrels lends accents of toast and vanilla. Structured white wines with high acid and grip, Puligny-Montrachet is destined for long aging.

Thanks to its rich texture and toasted flavors, this wine pairs well with white fish and shellfish. Its natural high acidity counterbalances cream-based sauces.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Gain has great transparency on the nose with flint and wet slate aromas soaring from the glass with great gusto. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry. Even without the slight reduction, you can tell immediately there is very good energy locked into this austere Champs Gain and there is a lovely peach skin note towards the vibrant finish. This is an excellent Puligny from Alain that should yield several years of drinking pleasure, possibly more.

The sons of Gerald Chavy have split their fathers holdings into two domains. They remain one of handful of growers that still reside in Puligny. Most domains are now owned by outsiders. Decanter Magazine selected both Alain and Jean Louis Chavy as one of 'the most improved domaines in Burgundy. Great vineyard sites, especially the Folatieres. The other other grower in Clavoillons is Domaine Lefaive. Alain owns 6.5 hectares of splendid vineyards. Alain makes restrained style of Puligny with ripe fruit balanced by crisp acidity, which are designed to long aging. Almost no chemicals are used in the vineyards apart for protection against mildew. All grapes are hand harvested, pressed and fermented in barrel at not more than 25 degrees.
