Blagny 1er Cru "La Pièce Sous Le Bois" 2007, Domaine Matrot
Elsa described this Blagny rouge as the "cheval de bataille" of the domaine. Possibly the only red Blagny available in the world. This pinot from the hamlet of Blagny offers a wonderful mix of fruits: cassis, raspberry, cherry. Multiple red and berry fruit aromas intermingling. Consistent and rich on the palate. This is indeed a special wine. Possibly comparable with more elegant Volnays but nothing else is like this in the Côte d'Or.
