A narrow vineyard located alongside the hamlet of Blagny (as the name suggests!). For centuries it was owned by the monks of the Abbey de Maizieres. The altitude starts at 319 metres up to 340 metres, with an east-facing 15% gradient at its steepest point. It produces wines that are a little gentler and smoother. More open and less of a wood frame than the 2019. Lovely tension and sea spray sits on top of the larger scaled, welcoming and succulent stone fruit flavours. A lovely savoury undertone complexifies the wine. The palate is open, granular, structured and long with less of an emphasis on fruit and ripeness. Old school White Burgundy in its character. -Jono Hersey, FWC Here the expressive nose offers a small step up in aromatic elegance with its cool and ultra-fresh aromas of spiced jasmine tea, pear and green apple. The racy, intense and beautifully well-delineated middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the chiseled, bone-dry and impressively long finale. 90-93 points, outstanding. Allen Meadows, The Burghound
