Domaine Blain-Gagnard, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2008

Atherton Wine Imports, San Jose CA.

Ten years on.

Emerald.  Legs like gothic arches with the orange blossom stickiness of ’08.  The palate is an implosion of concentration, a volcanic fury expressed as stammering solidity.  Penetrating finish.  The deep has depth here.  From .21 h/a of Criots vine, situated between Roger Belland and Fontaine-Gagnard, the oldest from 1929.  Now – 2028.
