Appellation: Meursault Premier Cru A.C. Côte de Beaune, Bourgogne, France.
An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the Château de Blagny is located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. A wonderful wine, traditionally vinified and matured in small oak barrels. It displays all the attributes of exemplary white Burgundy, showing opulence and a minerally freshness, coupled with rich, fat flavours which develop magnificently over time.

Monopole. Pale gold. More zest and savour on the nose of this than on the village Meursault.Drink 2012-2016 : Rating 15.5/20 - Jancis Robinson (JAN/2011)
Lustrous gold. On both nose and palate, minerality, precision, with a burgeoning richness. Plenty of substance, withal. Ageworthy. Rating 17/20 - Michael Edwards, The World of Fine Wine (MAR/2011)
Much less expressive than the Puligny-Montrachet, this has more tightly reined-in stony fruits on the nose. Very pure, with an attractive definition to it, and a slightly cleaner style. There is fruit here, with a subtle and very primary tropical-stone-fruit style. Quite drily reserved on the palate, defined, grippy, with a nice seam of spicy midpalate acidity. Quite cool in terms of character, supple but well-framed, and a touch of polish here. Given time this will develop some really appealing features I think. A nice firm finish too. Rating 16.5/20 - Chris Kissack (JAN/2011)
