Refined and racy, this is a sophisticated expression of Puligny-Montrachet terroir by François Carillon, whose familial ties to Burgundy stretch back to the 17th Century.
A soft, evocative palate of pear, spice, and white florals are evident on the nose and palate, with a textured, rich finish.
Similar bright colour. The nose is a little restrained but suggestive of underlying class. Certainly the volume of fruit in the mouth is what it should be, with a sumptuous texture behind and very good length.

Aromas of candied citrus peal, orange oil, warm pastry and green mango introduce the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Gain, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine that's succulent and fleshy, concluding with a delicately exotic finish.

Puligny Blancs have a distinguished bouquet of almond paste, ferns, tropical fruit, amber, and white flowers. Their discreet acidity leaves room for a very soft mouthfeel and an impressive long finish.
