    Just above the Mazures lieu dit, this Premier Cru is known for its bolder fruit flavours. The 2019 is a fine example with additional soft aromas of toffee and fudge. On the palate it has an appealingly silky viscosity. It is honeyed and rich, with flavours of poached pear on the finish. Lovely.

  • Wine Advocate, January 2021, Score: 90-92

    The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain was the first site Pillot harvested, and he feels he picked a touch early here. Offering up notes of citrus oil, nutmeg, apricot and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, with a tightly wound, rather introverted profile that doesn't display the same plenitude that one finds in the domaine's other premiers crus.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2020, Score: 91-94

    Still a light green touch, but good grip as Clive Coates would have said. Lively and delicious, with minor reductive notes. Fresh yellow fruit, very good energy. Length and a classy finish. Perhaps my preferred Champs-Gains this year. 4 stars

Third generation wine growers, Paul began managing the family domaine in 1968, taking over from his father, Henri. It was his father that decided to begin bottling their own wines after the First World War. Paul further developed the domaine by increasing the family's vineyard holdings with various Chassagne Montrachet Premier Crus - many located on the well-draining top slope positions.The domaine now boasts a respectable 13 hectares from which they produce 15 wines. Today, Paul's oldest son Thierry has taken over the majority of winemaking responsibilities and hasdone so over the past few vintages. According to Paul, Thierry has a sort of ‘sixth sense' way ofdoing things which has only enhanced the wines' innate qualities. All we know is that they aredelicious and truly display a magical attribute that can only come from a master.Read less

Region

Chassagne Montrachet

The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet can be difficult to distinguish from Puligny. At their most typical they are slightly fleshier and more hedonistic, but are often just as mineral and refined making the two almost inseparable. When distinguishable, they offer notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom and honey. Many have become quite approachable when young. It is larger than Puligny with vineyards totalling over 330 hectares. Though it shares both the grand cru vineyards of Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, it has sole ownership of the miniscule Criots Bâtard Montrachet. Similar to Puligny, Chassagne also grows Pinot Noir, which can be austere when young. A small amount of red Chassagne is also made.
