Marc-Antonin Blain, son of Jean-Marc and Claudine, grew up among the vineyards of Chassagne, but it was the vintages he spent abroad in Australia and New Zealand that inspired his passion for winemaking. Back in France, under the guidance of his grandfather Jacques Gagnard – an atypical figure in the world of wine – that Marc-Antonin learned about the unique terroir of his native Chassagne-Montrachet. 

In 2009 Marc-Antonin established his own estate in the heart of Chassagne. He continues to work with vines that have been in his family since 1683; the vineyard was entrusted to him by his grandfather a year before his passing. Covering 1.16 ha the Domaine is divided amongst four appellations, including Batard-Montrachet. Marc-Antonin practices sustainable viticulture, minimising intervention in the vineyard while protecting and nurturing the vines. Grass is grown between the rows, which promotes microbial life in the soil; these organisms helps the plants find balance within the broader terroir.

William Kelley, The Wine Advocate - The 2021 whites are classically proportioned, pure and fine-boned, albeit sometimes a little lean out of the gates. The best analogy is with a cleaner, purer version of the 2013 vintage, (a year sometimes marked by late-season thunderstorms that lent the wines exotic aromatics, something 2021 was spared). Like their red counterparts, the 2021 white wines are picking up texture and flesh with maturation on the lees, and they seem likely to show better from bottle than they did from barrel.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
