Blagny 1er Cru "La Pièce Sous Le Bois" 2009, Domaine Matrot
This red Blagny captures the essence of ripe pinot grapes. A rich red berry and black berry nose which has a lively nature. Pure berry fruit on the palate that leaves a soft impression initially and is then followed by a savoury and nicely structured finish. Full-flavoured and "sympathique". A good representative of the 2009 vintage and a killer to put into a blind tasting (Blagny sits on the Côte above Puligny and Meursault). Blagny is located on the right hand side of the photo behind the small wood. Tasted courtesy of the Corney & Barrow Burgundy 2009 tasting.
