Chapelle de Blagny 2022

Chapelle de Blagny 2022

For me, this really was the highlight of our En Primeur tasting trip – the wines were spectacular and were showing brilliantly. If I was forced to choose a favourite I would struggle between the Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny and the Meursault Blagny 1er Cru Sous le Dos d’Ane –  but all the wines here punch way above their weight and offer outstanding value for money – not something that can be said too often with Burgundy these days!

The Domaine Chapelle de Blagny has been around for generations, and not many people had heard of it because they sold all their grapes to the Beaune negociants. However for a couple decades now they have been crafting gorgeous wines from the highest vineyards in Meursault.

“In a surprisingly short period, Chapelle de Blagny has become a must-buy Meursault producer… These bottles cost less than £70 all in, and I think this is a steal for this level of refinement.” – Matthew Jukes

Domaine Chapelle de Blagny, Meursault

The hamlet of Blagny is a Cistercian heritage site and even during the earlier gallo-roman period it is believed that the inhabitants cultivated vines.

From the 12th to the 18th century Blagny belonged to the Cistercian order established in the nearby abbey of Maizières. As commented by several 18th century writers, it appears that the monks’ knowledge of winegrowing had already built up the reputation of Blagny for its fine wine.

After the revolution, the domaine was sold in 1793 as national property and then acquired in 1811 by an ancestor of the present owner, Etienne de Brechard, and for five generations the family tended the vines, harvesting the grapes and up until recently sold them to local merchants. The property is named after a 15th century chapel located next to the winery which still remains today.

The Premier Cru vineyards in the hamlet of Meursault-Blagny may be less well-known than other Premier Crus like Perrières, Genevrières or Charmes, but quality-wise they rival the best, especially as their higher elevation now gives them an advantage in warm weather. Situated at the highest point of the Premier Crus on high, steep slopes straddling the communes of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, the high altitude protects them from the effects of global warming, allowing the natural acidities to be maintained.

The vineyards are all located on the terroir of Blagny:

    • Vines planted in white located on the commune of Meursault, have “Meursault-Blagny” appellation.
    • Vines planted in white located on the commune of Puligny-Montrachet, have “Puligny-Montrachet, Hameau de Blagny” appellation.

Offered subject to remaining unsold and final written confirmation.

Wines available for delivery autumn 2024.

Delivery will be charged at cost.

Just uphill from Meursault-Perrieres 1er Cru, an outcrop of rock - resembling a donkey s back - which gives the wine its name. Average vine age here is 80 years old & perhaps the most mineral of all the whites from this domaine, and yet also deeply concentrated (wide & long). In keeping with the house style of no new oak in the whites - it's also 1 to 4 year old barrels here. There are two wines from this terrific estate that scored identical 18s, and the main difference between the two is that Les Ravelles is more forward and enticing right now, and Meursault 1er Cru Blagny Sous le Dos d Ane ( 320 per 6 bottles IB; 18+/20) is closed and introverted and will require at least four years to unravel (yes, that s a pun)! In a surprisingly short period, Chapelle de Blagny has become a must-buy Meursault producer. These bottles cost less than 70 all in, and I think this is a steal for this level of refinement. 18+/20, Matthew Jukes [01/01/2024]

This is a tiny 1er Cru vineyard of only 1.2 hectares, surely one of Meursault s best-kept secrets. The average vine age is 60 years from this cool higher site. A very judicious use of oak with a mix of 1 to 4 year old barrels (no new oak). A detailed & finely nuanced Chardonnay & a very citrus driven expression of Meursault. Terrific energy, persistence & length. Les Ravelles is the furthest Premier Cru from the village itself, adjacent to the hamlet of Blagny and tucked up above the Puligny border. This is perhaps the reason for the dramatic and unique stance of this delicious wine. There are two wines from this terrific estate that scored identical 18s, and the main difference between the two is that Les Ravelles is more forward and enticing right now, and Meursault 1er Cru Blagny Sous le Dos d Ane ( 320 per 6 bottles IB; 18+/20) is closed and introverted and will require at least four years to unravel (yes, that s a pun)! In a surprisingly short period, Chapelle de Blagny has become a must-buy Meursault producer. These bottles cost less than 70 all in, and I think this is a steal for this level of refinement. 18+/20, Matthew Jukes [01/01/2024]
