Peter Maude Fine Wines
2020, Domaine de la Vougeraie, PULIGNY-MONTRACHET "Champs Gains"
$131.10 inc. GST
Located at the St-Aubin end of the vineyard. Glowing lemon and lime in colour, there is more weight and more tension than the village Puligny. Ripe grapefruit and lemon notes, middleweight. *** 90-92/100, Jasper Morris MW.
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru has a very tight and mineral-driven, petrichor [smell of rain wetting a warm pavement] - tinged bouquet that demanded time to really open. The palate is well balanced with fine definition, still some oak to be subsumed here, quite zesty towards the finish. Fine, but maybe just short of an ounce of mineralité on the finish. 90-92/100, Neal Martin.
