Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The area of production is located in the hamlet of Blagny, located at the top of the hill above the village of Puligny Montrachet. "Meursault Blagny" is a plot located on the upper part of the hill on the boundaries of the Puligny Montrachet Premiers Crus area.
The Vintage 2008 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery with regular batonnage (stirring of the lees in the barrel) have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aging in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit and honey. Subdued minerality with a hint of vanilla. Elegant and delicate. Beautiful aromas underlined by a well-defined minerality and a well-integrated oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
