“This is almost a hypothetical combination of the first two wines as it blends notes of rosemary oil, white flowers, citrus and a hint of petrol. Rich, concentrated and caressing flavors possess good power and punch on the prominently saline-inflected finale. Good stuff that should drink well young and with mid-term cellaring.”-91BH♥, Outstanding
Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain married Claudine Gagnard, youngest daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josèphe Gagnard of Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange. The couple runs this venerable domaine with the help of their son Marc-Antonin. They now control 20.5 acres of vines in Chassagne-Montrachet, including holdings in three grands crus: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet.
