2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “Hameau de Blagny”

Comtesse de Chérisey

2014 Puligny-Montrachet  <i>1er Cru</i> “Hameau de Blagny” Comtesse de Chérisey - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

At the Puligny appellation’s highest point, where the tiny hamlet of Blagny (population ~10) demarcates the border with Meursault, lies the premier cru Hameau de Blagny. Regally overlooking the rest of the Côte de Beaune, Comtesse de Chérisey’s stubby old Chardonnay vines poke out from the stones that litter the vineyard floor. This is textbook Puligny—a fine perfume, layers of rich flavor on the palate, an elegant kiss of oak—with a Blagny twist: racy acidity and a saline note that makes each sip a mouthwatering delight. It’s no wonder wine writer Clive Coates once referred to Puligny-Montrachet as “the greatest white wine commune on Earth.”

About 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.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
