Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the vineyards constituting the estate of the Château de Blagny are located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Château de Blagny is the most important domaine in the commune.
The average age of the vines are 30 years with an average yield of 40 hl/ha.The soil is of stoney marl and jurassic limestone.
Harvested by hand.
Meursault Premier Cru Château de Blagny 2006 Vt has a pale yellow colour. The nose is intense and complex with notes of toasted almond, fresh butter, vanilla and yellow peach. On the palate, the wine is well-balanced between fullness and persistence. Lots of elegance with notes of almond and fresh hazelnut.
