2018 Blain-Gagnard Le Montrachet Grand Cru
Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain 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. They now control 20.5 acres of vines in Chassagne-Montrachet, including holdings in three grands crus: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet.
Made from a small, .08ha plot planted in 1934 on the Chassagne-Montrachet side and given to Claudine and Jean-Marc Blain by Claudine’s father, Jacques Delagrange, on his retirement in 1999, this is classic, powerful but at the same time, refined Montrachet with the 30% new wood always being swallowed up by the fruit.
