Domaine Comtesse de Cherisey Hameau de Blagny Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru, France 2020
VINTAGE : 2020
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet
VARIETALS : Chardonnay
The Hamlet of Blagny, which gives its name to this particular premier cru, enjoys a privileged position high above the village of Puligny-Montrachet. The cool nights at this elevation are essential to a slow and steady ripening in hot years, while the old vines—planted in 1950—have their roots deeply entrenched in the marl subsoil, finding crucial resources to survive Burgundy’s increasingly frequent periods of drought. Succulent fruit abounds in this sun-soaked 2020, underlain by the electric signature of wines from this remote corner of the Côte de Beaune. A guaranteed ager, this is tasting just ravishing today.
