2008 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “Hameau de Blagny”

Comtesse de Chérisey

Traditionally in Burgundy, many tasks of the vineyard were the exclusive domain of women, perhaps because they demanded a softer touch and a more delicate approach. Today, a few domaines, including Romanée-Conti, still require some work to be under the sole management of women. In Blagny, where grapes have grown uninterrupted for more than one thousand years and the Chérisey family has been growing them for the last two hundred, Hélène, the proprietress, manages the labor in the vines. While her husband may run a simple and handsoff cellar—allowing native yeasts, a cold cave, and the terroir to do their job—it’s Hélène who toils most in the soil. The Hameau de Blagny is an absolute rarity in Burgundy. Located on the high slope that dominates both Meursault and Puligny below, its wine contains the power and weight you’d expect from those villages, nuanced with the higher-altitude limestone chalkiness and precision one finds in the top estates of Chablis. A dazzling combination!

About Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
