Comtesse de Cherisey – Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny
Perched high up in the hamlet of Blagny, this premier cru which straddles the appellations of Meursault and Puligny may become known as one of the top terroirs for white wines thanks to global warming. The altitude and the east facing slopes serve to offset the effects of drought and heat.
This is a lovely Puligny with great structure and freshness offsetting the beauty of the Chardonnay fruit. On the finish there is a vibrant, fruit and mineral taste that leads to an elegant finale.
White meat, lobster and shellfish, fish, pungent cheese, and vegetables
Serving temperature: 11 to 13 °C.
