BURGUNDY | FRANCE

Champ Gains is high on the hill, and produces a wine in which a sense of dryness overshadows the sweet fruit – the sweetness that comes out is not an easy sweetness, and while you get apricot and other fruits on the palate, there is always a sense of dryness pulling them back.

“Bright yellow. Fascinating aromas of vineyard peach, fresh apricot and Chartreuse-like herbal infusion, plus a hint of kerosene. Very rich and fine-grained, with a captivating orange zest coolness accented by white pepper. There’s something Riesling-like about this wine’s impression of sucrosité without actual sugar. Almost oily on the aftertaste but enlivened by emerging minerality. Rich in dry extract and very long, but not quite as palate-staining as the best Chassagne-Montrachets at this address.”
