Description

100% Chardonnay. The lost hamlet of Blagny, up in the hills between Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault in the Côte d’Or in Burgundy, is home to Domaine Comtesse de Chérisey. This almost magical, lost-in-time corner of the world boasts a unique microclimate, with a slightly different average temperature, exposition and soil than the rest of Burgundy. In our humble opinion, our friend and vigneron, Laurent Martelet, creates the most haunting masterpieces that emerge from this terroir. All of the de Chérisey premier cru vines are at least 60 years old and they encircle their ancient cellar in the Hameau de Blagny. These are magical wines.

Tasting Notes
"The 2010 Meursault Blagny 1er Cru Genelotte has a very fruit-driven bouquet, almost exotic compared to the 2011, with tangerine, quince and mango scents infused with fine mineralite. The palate is tensile on the entry with very good acidity, touches of lemon curd, brioche and hazelnut with a vivacious, smoky finish that lingers long in the mouth. Excellent." - Neal Martin
