0.17 hectare plot planted in 1970. High on the hills above Les Folatieres, it is separated by a forest line. Relatively thin top soil at an altitude between 300 and 360 metres above sea level.

More of a lemon citrus spectrum; lemon drop, lemon juice. Grapefruit pith lift. Mountain herbs and a lick of sea spray. The palate shows a baked fruit spectrum with a big squeeze of lemon and lime juice over the top. Firm, long with a slightly round shape that still maintains drive. - Jono Hersey, FWC

The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru, matured in 25-30% new oak, has an impressive, well-defined mineral-driven bouquet that shows off the quality of this appellation. The palate is saline on the entry, fresh and vibrant and conveys plenty of energy. Maybe a little short compared to the Les Folatières, yet it is harmonious and appealing even at this early stage. 90-92 Points - Neal Martin, Vinous.com
