Chartron et Trebuchet Montagny Blanc
Maison Chartron et Trebuchet
France - Burgundy - Montagny

In 1936, the four villages of Buxy, Montagny-lès-Buxy, Jully-lès-Buxy and Saint-Vallerin were joined together to form the AOC of Montagny. The vineyards are located on slopes 250-400 meters above sea level and are oriented to the east and southeast. Yields are 55 hectoliters / hectare.

The south facing vineyards of these villages are known for their pebbled limestone soil, and because of this common soil characteristic, the wines of Montagny are characterized by their slight flinty note. 

The bright acidity found in Chardonnay from this region, mixed with the underlying mineral note, creates a wine that steps outside the boundary of the classic Burgundy Chardonnay. Notes of honeysuckle and spring flowers fill the nose. On the palate, the juice is fresh and lively with flavors of white peach and ripe pear. Rich, refined and delicate with mineral hints pulling together on the finish.
