Blankiet

Blankiet Estate is an estate in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains near Yountville, in Napa Valley. Founded in 1996 by Claude Blankiet, a businessman and a native of Dijon, France, and his wife Katherine, the estate was founded to make Bordeaux-style blends. Blankiet’s first winemakers were Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer. Seven years later Martha McClellan came winemaker, with consultation from Michel Rolland. Today the winemaker is Denis Malbec, formerly cellar master at Chateau Latour. Blankiet makes two flagship wines: Blankiet Estate, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, and Rive Droite, a Saint-Emilion style Merlot-based blend. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that Blankiet’s wines are “world class, combining the extraordinary power of the site with unbelievable elegance and definition.”
