Domaine Florent Rouve, Meursault 1er Cru Blagny, Burgundy, France, 2018

Producer Profile

This brilliant young winemaker has made a name for himself in both his home region of the Jura and in Burgundy ....

where he has expanded his holdings considerably by buying the famous Jean Rijckaert estate from the eponymous Belgian restaurateur. Florent Rouve now vinifies an exemplary range of wines in his cellar in Davayé in the heart of the Saint Veran appellation.


Vineyards are located between Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet on mostly marl limestone soils. They encourage and foster biodiversity in the vineyard and never use chemicals. Only copper and sulphur treatments are used, along with plant-based fertilisers.


The finest selection of grapes are selected according to harvest conditions. This balanced orchestration of geological diversity makes for the wine’s consistent excellence. Traditional barrel-fermentation and aged in 20% new oak barrels.

Tasting Note

This is a wonderfully, ripe and rich Meursault 1er Cru Blagny, with just the right amount of oak resulting in delicious drinking from one of the best 1er Cru in Meursault. A long generous finish that doesn't lose its crisp acidity. Perfection!

Food Matching

The acidity stands up well even with red meat such as Beef Bourguignon as well as duck breast and pheasant with mushrooms!
