Domaine Blain Gagnard
blain-gagnard chassagne-montrachet rouge 2019 750ml
Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain married Claudine Gagnard, youngest daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josephe 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, Batard-Montrachet, and Criots-Batard-Montrachet.
Chassagne-Montrachet lies towards the southern end of the Cote de Beaune and is famous for its white wines, although half of its total plantings are in red. In addition to the Grand Crus, Blain-Gagnard's holdings in Chassagne-Montrachet include two red premier crus and four white premier crus along with small holdings in Volnay and Pommard. The vineyards are farmed by lutte raisonÃ©e ("reasoned struggle").
Chassagne-Montrachet rouge can have some of the same characteristics found in the red wines of the Cote de Nuits. They can have some of the same tannins and earthiness found in Nuits-Saint-Georges and the premier crus especially can occasionally rival the complexity and longevity found in more famous red wine villages.
Domaine Blain-Gagnard is well-known as an excellent source for Chassagne-Montrachet rouge. Old vines (with some plantings dating back to 1932) give depth and concentration while aging in old barrels allows the appellation to speak clearly. This is classic Chassagne-Montrachet rouge with earthy "sauvage" flavors and a dark fruit profile.
