As you surely already know, there are two principle grape varieties in Burgundy. But thanks to the famous climats a multitude of wines are produced, each more exceptional than the next. And here are two whose vines are just outside our door.
The Hamlet of Blagny boasts a privileged position. Back in the 12th century the Cistercian monks of Maizières valued this land, which straddles Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault… As a red you can enjoy, therefore, a Blagny 1er Cru and for white, a Meursault 1er Cru Blagny. The red, of a deep purplish ruby red, is characterised by a beautiful body and concentrated aromas. The white is distinguished by a gorgeous mineral flavour and a long-lasting taste in the mouth. There is so much we could say … but nothing speaks better than actually tasting the wine, don’t you think so?
Some of you have already enjoyed the art de vivre at the Hamlet of Blagny, staying in the first building we renovated, called Maizières. The domain has been extended recently with the opening of a new house, Cistercia.
For those of you who do not yet know the level of quality at the Hamlet of Blagny, let’s just say that its owners have sought out the very best for your comfort. The furnishings and fittings at the new arrival, Cistercia, are the same as those used in Maizières. Smaller, it still has two bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom of course! Perfect for a little family or two couples it can be ideally combined with Maizières, bringing the capacity up to 12 people!
As Bernard Pivot says, “In Burgundy when you talk of a climat you don’t look up to the sky, you look down to the earth”. And that is a perfect summary of the uniqueness of this vineyard, set to be entered on the UNESCO world heritage list this summer.
A 100% Burgundy term, a climat is a land, a parcel, an area …. There are over 1400 of them, each producing a different wine. It’s a heritage, a patrimony, an exception that is as much geographical it is cultural, historic and gastronomic. The Hamlet of Blagny welcomes you to the very heart of this mosaic. Located amongst the high ranking Premiers Crus, it offers a choice between Meursault on the bedrooms side and Puligny Montrachet on the pool side. Whatever the weather during your stay here, these two climats set the barometer fair.
