Domaine Comtesse de Cherisey Meursault Bois de Blagny 2020
VINTAGE : 2020
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Burgundy, Meursault
VARIETALS : Chardonnay
At the very top of the Côte de Beaune between the villages of Meursault and Puligny, a few vineyard rows abut the forest known as the Bois de Blagny. Conditions are slightly cooler due to the elevation and the proximity to these woods, and the soil is chock-full of blocks of limestone. Hélène de Chérisey and her husband, Laurent Martelet, produce their village-level Meursault from this unique site; better yet, they age it in barrels made from oaks selected in these very woods. The result is a charming, cool-fruited Chardonnay that is terroir-driven in every sense of the word.
