2020 Meursault 1er Cru Blagny, Michel Bouzereau

Blagny sits high up, above the heart of the Meursault commune. This altitude brings a focused freshness to the wines. It has notes of honeydew melon, with a richly mineral seashell note - not unlike Chablis - on the nose. The soil is very white limestone up here, and this makes for a scintillating palate. It feels straighter than the Grands Charrons, in many ways, more like a Puligny in profile than a Meursault.

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Meursault Blagny 1er Cru has a vibrant bouquet with orange sorbet and limoncello scents - quite vibrant and feisty. The palate is well balanced, the 25% new oak nearly integrated, although here, the finish just needs to muster more amplitude and mineralité because at the moment it is being outclassed by the single Village Crus.
