First Growth red Blagny is one of the rarest, yet finest reds of the Côte de Beaune, with uniquely soft texture. We were delighted, last year, to introduce this exquisite wine for the first time, and the 2020 is as irresistible as was the 2019. 50% whole clusters went into the fermentation vat, and the wine has been ageing in 40% new barrels. The grapes came to ripeness early, so this was the Domaine’s first plot to be picked. Colour is impressive, dark purple, with fresh, black fruit aromas of striking appeal. Palate shows dense fruitiness, with superb mid-palate, gentle tannins and lovely, smooth length (for drinking 2023-2030+).
