93 Points from Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 Meursault-Blagny Premier Cru comes from the southern part of Meursault, from 35-year-old vines, and spent 11 months in neutral barrels. It has a beautiful perfume of white flowers, honeysuckle, mulled stone fruits, and oysters shell-like minerality. It’s medium-bodied, has good concentration, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s impeccably made and well worth seeking out. It should keep for 5-7 years.
This wine from steep slopes with clayey-calcareous subsoils is always strongly marked by its terroir. Its mineral and flinty character is unique in Meursault. You will notice the contrast between minerality and notes of honey in the bouquet. The rich, fruity, and powerful aromas are highlighted by spicy and mineral notes. Delicious exotic dishes will pair perfectly with this complex wine, whose personality will have fully developed after 3-7 years in the bottle.
