The Blagny “La pièce sous le Bois” Premier Cru, just like its neighbour Meursault-Blagny Premier Cru Blanc, is strongly marked by its terroir. It is one of very few appellations in the Côte de Beaune where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grow happily side by side on the same parcel."Soft reductive notes are just sufficiently prominent to shave the top nuances from the citrus peel and white orchard fruit scents.
The slightly riper medium-bodied flavors also possess lovely delineation and almost as much minerality before concluding in a lingering finish that is a bit less austere than usual. This relatively elegant effort should drink well young if desired."
