Winemaker Notes

This wine is sourced from two plots in Morgeot that total 0.50 hectares, one planted in 1964 and one in 1968. These old Pinot Noir vines are rooted in deep, rich, red soils toward the base of the slope, which foster a powerful wine with muscular tannins. The robust structure of this wine-combined with its deep color and rustic, concentrated flavors-requires up to a decade of aging to enable the tannins to soften and the flavors to mature.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There is just half the normal harvest of the Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot this year. Deep ruby in colour, it has a delightful redcurrant and crushed strawberry bouquet. The palate is crisp and fresh with chalky tannins and fine focus on the tense and lively finish. This is one of the best red Chassagnes that I tasted in 2013 as it conveys a sense of substance that they often lack. Range: 90-92

This is quite generously oaked and that is unusual for a Blain-Gagnard wine, red or white. Happily it's not so much that it completely disguises the otherwise fresh black cherry, pepper and pungent earth aromas. There is fine density to the muscular and voluminous medium-bodied flavors that possess a dusty and rustic finish, though not overly so, rustic and offers very good depth and length. The concentration is such that this should eat its wood treatment though be aware if you're going to try a bottle young that it's not typical of the domaine's style.

Domaine Blain-Gagnard Winery Video

Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain (a Sancerrois) married Claudine Gagnard, youngest daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josèphe Gagnard of Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange. The couple runs this venerable domaine with the help of their son Marc-Antonin. Jean-Marc Blain and Claudine Gagnard met while they were both studying oenology at Dijon. The estate's vineyards come mainly from grandparents and other relatives of Claudine, along with a few purchases. The vines are planted in Chardonnay (55%) and the rest in pinot noir, with a small parcel of Passetoutgrain. They now control 20.5 acres of vines in Chassagne-Montrachet, including holdings in three grands crus: Le Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet, and Criots-Batard-Montrachet.

Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A Côte de Beaune village most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

There is some fine Pinot Noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
