Founded in 1998, Domaine Comtesse de Chérisey is a family-owned winery in the charming hamlet of Blagny between Puligny and Meursault but higher on the hill. Nestled beneath the woods, the vineyards have a relatively cool microclimate which gives the wines a racy mineral quality. The Premier Cru vines surround the historic cellar and are at least 60 years old. Laurent Martelet follows biodynamic principles and intervenes minimal ly in the winery. He never chaptalizes, uses natural yeasts and treats the wines as gently as possible preferring to use gravity rather than pumps.

Named after the little birds that peasants traditionally offered the nobility, La Genelotte is a monopole for the domaine. Concentrated, opulent and complex, the nose shows haunting notes of blood orange, lime peel, hazelnut and blossom, supported by a honeyed, creamy texture and excellent length on the palate.
