    June 11, 2018 - Light gold colour. No sign of premature oxidation. A pleasant wine but somewhat lacking in complexity. Medium concentration, well balanced. Certainly not overripe. I am going to drink any remaining bottles this year, I don’t see any upside to keeping further.

    Bien ficelé!

    September 5, 2016 - Decanted and sampled as we cooked. The first hour offered up little to be desired, everything was muted, and what was available was extremely backwards, and almost petrol.

    Some time after about an hour, it started to become more expressive. White flowers began to emerge from the glass albeit still rather passively. crisp apple, pear, apricot, cut grass, kissed with floral. Oaking finishes the taste with toasty notes with a vanilla refinement.

    Acids are noticeable yet not overwhelming. excellent length and stay on the palate.

    Overall 89-90 +potential. Not blown away, and for the price, certainly not impressed. It's a clean, and enjoyable oaked white burg that just falls short of the cut.

    February 11, 2015 - Second bottle; much better than the first with no sign of being prematurely advanced. Pale canary yellow with a slightly bright green tinge. The nose was filled with citrus, wood and earthy truffle accents. The palate was medium bodied and well balanced; mostly citrus with the earthiness creeping up on the back end and leaving a slightly bitter impression. Doesn't scream Meursault but then again Blagny is one of those regions in Burgundy that seems to blend certain characteristics from each of the surrounding villages in the Cote de Blancs. Very enjoyable but another year of rest should make it all the better.
