Other Reviews....
Here the nose also flirts with reduction though the underlying fruit is clearly ripe with wisps of citrus influence. There is good punch to the less concentrated (though not dilute) flavors that possess an attractive mouthfeel while displaying fine length on the slightly warm finale. This too is a wine of finesse. Drink 2025+.

The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain opens in the glass with hints of nutmeg, pear, peach, white flowers and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, supple and charming, with lively acids, its outlines are promising, and I suspect it will take on depth with further élevage.

The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Champs Gain 1er Cru is more reserved on the nose compared to the Chenevottes, touches of lemon rind and light fumé aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp opening. Quintessentially Chassagne, there are lovely orange pith and tangerine notes coming through towards the finish with a long spicy aftertaste tinged with crème brûlée. Excellent. Drink 2022 - 2040.

It is important to pick Champs Gain at the right time, thinks Damien, as the lower slopes can easily get a bit ripe. Toasty barrel, good fruit behind, a bit betwixt and between, more complicated here to pull out the detail, more weight at the back and a yellower fruit, only lightly peachy. I am not finding it easy to make a judgement as to whether or not this actually is a touch too ripe, or it is just that the wine needs more time to come together. My rating may be a bit conservative her.
