Product description

Jean Marc Blain-Gagnard, originally from Sancerre, and Claudine, from Chassagne, created this domaine in 1980. The vineyards are mostly from Claudine’s family, with the addition of a few acquired later. Red Chassagne-Montrachet is rare but worth exploring.

Domaine Blain-Gagnard is well-known as an excellent source for Chassagne-Montrachet rouge. Old vines (with some plantings dating back to 1932) give depth and concentration while aging in old barrels allows the appellation to speak clearly. 

Chassagne-Montrachet rouge can have some of the same characteristics found in the red wines of the Cote de Nuits. They can have some of the same tannins and earthiness found in Nuits-Saint-Georges and the premier crus especially can occasionally rival the complexity and longevity found in more famous red wine villages.

This is classic Chassagne-Montrachet rouge with earthy “sauvage” flavors and a dark fruit profile.
