Blanchot probably takes its name from the whiteness of its soil (“blanc” being French for white). At the eastern extremity of the Grand Cru hillside, it differs from the other climats by its exposure, which is clearly south-east facing, giving it more sun in the morning. Slope is quite steep, and its geology has a specific ingredient, with the appearance of blue clay.
Some say that the wines of this climat do not have as much power as the others. They tend to favour elegance and finesse, through remarkably intense floral aromas and variable expressions depending on the specific site within the vineyard.Producers
