The lost village 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. You may have heard the name “Blagny” before, attached to a bottle of premier cru Meursault-Blagny, or perhaps even a bottle of the increasingly rare Blagny rouge. 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. Vigneron Laurent Martelet creates the most evocative Chardonnays that emerge from this terroir. Comtesse de Chérisey is named in honor of Laurent's wife Hélène’s mother, who...

In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from...

Burgundies of Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne-Romanée in the eighteenth century, with records showing a Mongeard working as vigneron for Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in 1786. In 1945, Jean Mongeard, whose mother was a Mugneret, found himself making wine at the age of 16. The entire 1945 crop was purchased by Baron le Roy, Marquis d’Angerville, and Henri Gouges. Gouges instructed the young Mongeard to personally bottle the wines, rather than sell in barrel (Stay tuned for Thursday's offer.) In 1975, Vincent Mongeard, Jean’s son, began working alongside his father and became responsible for viticulture and vinification...
