Unique in Champagne for having 'château' in its name, Château de Bligny has extraordinary historical, architectural and wine heritage. Its superb 2010 shows a great balance of creamy richness, with ripe fruit, biscuity richness and mineral finesse.
(Was £49.99 a bottle)
Beyond the Label
Citrus, white orchard fruits, core of minerality, rich biscuity notes
Ripe peach and pear, with hints of vanilla and toasty brioche spice
Picture an historic French château surrounded by a belt of green vineyards. This scenic image is the Château de Bligny estate in Champagne. Nestled in the heart of the Côte des Bars, it was built in 1773 by Marquis de Dampierre on the foundations of a feudal castle. Nowadays it is owned by the Rapeneau family who have revamped the vineyards and renovated the château. All winemaking stages are done at the estate – from growing, to fermenting, to ageing. Their fine Blanc de Blancs 2010 is pure Chardonnay – the star grape of the vintage – taken from 8 plots on the property. Bottle-fermented and lees-aged for years, it's gained toasty richness to flatter the ripe orchard fruits and minerality. A perfect celebration fizz or a luxury treat.
"A real treat to enjoy a great vintage Champagne from 2010. Blanc de Blancs was the winner that year"
Sarah Everden Buyer for Champagne
