Domaine Sylvain Langoureau, Meursault-Blagny Premier Cru (Burgundy, France) La Piece Sous le Bois 2016

($60):  The vineyards of Blagny, a hamlet located high on the slope in Puligny-Montrachet, spread over both that village and the village of Meursault.  So, it’s not surprising that the wines from Meursault-Blagny have a mineral-like resemblance to those from Puligny.  Crisp and racy, this wine, from La Piece Sous le Bois (“the site below the woods”), combines the richness of Meursault with the elegance and precision of Puligny.  Its persistent finish makes it all the more enjoyable to drink.
