We went long on the 2011 vintage, the bicentennial year for this domaine that continues to inspire all of us here at KLWM. Now we can offer it with some proper bottle age. Blagny is Meursault’s highest-altitude appellation and benefits from a unique microclimate. Kermit discovered Blagny at François Jobard’s place in the 1970s and has always had a weak spot for it: you’ll understand why when you taste this bottle. Soaring aromatics and a deeply stony depth are two things you can expect. A long life in your cellar is another. –Dixon Brooke
