2012 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru “La Genelotte”

Comtesse de Chérisey

2012 Meursault-Blagny <i>1er Cru</i> “La Genelotte” Comtesse de Chérisey - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $92.00

Ancient vines, a high-altitude limestone vineyard, a low-yielding vintage that delivered concentrated wines, long and slow aging in oak in a deep stone cellar dug into the hillside . . . all the makings for an explosive Meursault-Blagny. Another world from the golden slopes just below, Meursault-Blagny is only produced from the vineyards around the Hameau de Blagny, a village founded by Cistercian monks in the twelfth century. They ventured high on the hill below the forest in a search for solace from the town’s bustle. Actually, it was for the quality of the soil. Meursault up here is very stony, and built for the long haul. A mature bottle is simply magical. While not fully mature, this 2012 is wide open and a marvel to enjoy today. –Dixon Brooke
