Les Champs-Gains lies close to the village just under En Cailleret. Pillot notes that Les Champs-Gains is less stony than his parcel in Les Mazures and that he always picks early here to keep tension in its cuvées. The deeper clay profile of the soil also brings genuine depth and texture, yet again—as the notes below make clear—there is more than enough freshness and mineral drive to balance the fruit.
'Pretty pale primrose with a discreet nose, good clay here, which shows in the richness on the palate, white fruit flesh and a light oak coating, with just a touch of acidity.' - 90-93 points. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
