2018 Blain-Gagnard 'La Boudriotte 1er Cru' Chassagne-Montrachet
Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain married Claudine Gagnard, youngest daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josèphe Gagnard of Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange. The couple runs this venerable domaine with the help of their son Marc-Antonin. They now control 20.5 acres of vines in Chassagne-Montrachet, including holdings in three grands crus: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet.
Burghound - "A very Chassagne nose reveals notes of rosemary oil, resin, apple, earth and a hint of tangerine peel. There is a lovely sense of verve along with excellent volume to the caressing yet powerful flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the slightly long and more complex finale. Good stuff. "
Wine Spectator - "A direct, peach- and melon-flavored white, shaded by butterscotch and vanilla. There is good intensity here, leaving a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024."
