2008 Cherisey Meursault Blagny Genelotte

"All of the de Cherisey vines are premier cru, are at least 60 years old, and they encircle their ancient cellar in the Hameau de Blagny. Their Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny is from vines on the south side of Blagny, level with the village, just above Puligny Truffieres. It is a wine that combines the power and richness of Meursault with the ethereal finesse of Puligny. The de Cherisey Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Genelotte is from a vineyard just north of Blagny, on the Meursault side of course, high on the slope above the village. Laurent and Helene are the sole proprietors. The wine is a powerful, classic, long-lived Meursault. The Genelotte vineyard is also a monopole meaning Laurent and Helene are sole proprietors."- Importer [+]
