In Blagny we trust! A fine glowing rich crimson purple. This has plenty of power to it, blackberries and bilberries, then a finish on cleaner fresher red fruit, quite a lot of nuance, good acidity and fine boned tannins, really very persistent. Lovely aftertaste. ***** (5 stars) 92-94/100, Jasper Morris MW.

The 2020 Blagny la Piece Sous Le Bois 1er Cru is very deep in colour. This offers red plum and a touch of mint on the nose that just misses a little animation. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, fleshy with black plum and cassis towards the grippy finish. Powerful, but maybe not as refined as other cuvées. 88-90/100, Neal Martin.
