Domaine Blain-Gagnard, Chassagne-Montrachet

With vineyards on many of Chassagne-Montrachet’s greatest, most famous hillsides, Jean-Marc and Claudine Blain’s Domaine is one of Burgundy’s finest white wine estates. In addition, their three reds are again stand-outs for superb, fairly-priced red Burgundy.

Minimal intervention is key to the Blain-Gagnard winemaking style. New oak barrels are used imperceptibly – being subtly spread amongst the different cuvées so that oakiness is never noticed. White wines are consistently bottled after no more than 11- or 12-months’ barrel-ageing, to ensure that maximum freshness is retained. The finished wines have purity, with impressive fruit richness and harmonious length, whilst accurately evoking their origins. Jean-Marc Blain reflects back on the vintage: “There were problems during 2019: some frost damage, then heat-spike periods, and drought. We picked between 9th-13th September, to ensure freshness balance, and did very little lees-stirring, wishing to avoid bringing heaviness.”
