Puligny-Montrachet, together with Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, forms the heart of the Côte de Beaune, the valhalla of chardonnay. Of this famous trio, Puligny is the smallest (235 ha in total) and the most illustrious. Within its borders are 4 of the 6 white Burgundy grands crus. Domaine Borgeot is located in the village of Rémigny on the Côte de Beaune. It was founded in 1903 and is now run by fourth generation brothers Laurent and Pascal Borgeot. Their 23 hectares are located in the villages of Bouzeron, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The magic of Domaine Borgeot lies in the two people who make these charming wines. Pascal is calm, measured and brings an element of control over Laurent, who can't sit still for a minute. As the saying goes in Burgundy, looking at the person behind the wines gives you an idea of the style of wine in your glass. Domaine Borgeot wines show Pascal's calm restraint balanced with Laurent's exuberance and liveliness.
The Borgeot Puligny-Montrachet is of course a 100% chardonnay coming from the Premier Cru vineyard Champs Gain. After manual picking from the organically counted vineyard, the wine stays for 11-13 months in 1-5 year old French oak barrels and 25% in new French oak barriques. The Borgeot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gains comes from the 'golden triangle' of Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault and then this Puligny 1er Cru 'Champs-Gains' from Borgeot is a paradigm. In this great wine, this is perhaps the one of all Burgundy whites that shows the best in terms of minerality and freshness. Pure, floral, ripe and refined, but beneath this blanket is a powerful structure that starts discreetly but rises powerfully, carrying the whole package through the center of the mouth to an impressively long finish. Classic Puligny.
