A Domaine run by the Burgundian power couple of Jean-Marc Blain and Claudine Blain (formerly Gagnard), with help from their son Marc-Antonin. Jean-Marc is perhaps one of the most meticulous wine-makers in the Cote de Beaune. His use of a mix vines of different ages results in wines of often unrivalled freshness and concentration. Moreover the Domaine's excellent Grand Cru wines are produced in very small quantities and are therefore subject to immense competition. The Domaine consistently produces some of the finest wines in Chassagne-Montrachet.
The Blain family is one of the most consistent and reliable sources in Chassagne. Le Cailleret is considered as the best 1er Cru of Chassagne-Montrachet
