The Legacy of Blain Gagnard

Step into the captivating story of Blain Gagnard, a name synonymous with exceptional wines. Born in 1980 through the union of Jean-Marc Blain, hailing from the enchanting region of Sancerrois, and Claudine Gagnard, the youngest daughter of the esteemed Gagnard-Delagrange family. Embracing their oenological studies in Dijon, Jean-Marc and Claudine embarked on a journey that would shape their lives forever. Today, together with their son Marc-Antonin, they nurture and sustain the revered Domaine Blain-Gagnard.

An ode to the beauty of white wines, Chassagne-Montrachet houses an intriguing duality with nearly half of its landscape devoted to the cultivation of red varieties. Within this remarkable tapestry, Blain-Gagnard meticulously tends to their vineyards, cherishing premier and grand crus such as Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet.

A Symphony of Winemaking

Within the cellars of Blain-Gagnard, a symphony of winemaking unfolds. Each note carefully composed, with a deep reverence for the land and the art of crafting exceptional wines. The journey begins as the Chardonnay grapes, perfectly ripened, release the delicate aroma of fresh almonds, a testament to the wisdom passed down by Claudine's grandfather. Fermentation in barrel ensues, guided by selected cultured yeast, as the wines mature gracefully on their lees, stirred gently until the moment is right. The red wines, born from destemmed Pinot Noir grapes, embark on their own transformation, a dance with native yeasts and a resting period in used barrels. These wines age patiently, waiting to reveal their truest expressions after 18 months of maturation.
