Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93-95 VM / 92-94 JM / 91-93+ WA
The 2020 Chassagne Montrachet les Champs Gains has a touch more mineralite on the nose compared to the Les Chenevottes, touches of gypsum and oyster shell intermingling with light white linen scents. The palate is very well balanced and beautifully poised with entrancing white peach and nectarine notes toward the irresistible finish. Yes, Yes, Yes!—Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
Mid lemon. A little more stuffing than the very agreeable Chenevottes, digging deep into fresh yellow fruit, some citrus rind, good acidity, and a particularly appealing intense crisp white fruit finish. Old vines count! Tasted: October 2021.—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Aromas of citrus zest, peach and pear, mingled with hints of white flowers, hazelnuts and fresh bread, preface the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and nicely concentrated wine with a bright spine of acidity and a mouthwateringly chalky finish. This looks to be Colin's best Champs Gain since 2017.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
