Very attractive wine, with a nice gold, with green tints. Delicate bouquet with a hint of hazelnuts and ferns. Slightly mineral, and full of fruit with a beautiful lingering flavor.

Wine of character and finesse.

Wine Making Notes:

Montagny AOC:

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 south facing vineyards of these villages are known for their pebbled limestone soil. Kimmeridgian is a type of limestone normally found in Chablis to the North, not in the south end of Côte Chalonnaise where Montagny sits.

The villages that make up the Montagny region share common soil characteristics and because of this, the wines have something in common: an ever so slight flint note. Not as pronounced as most outstanding Chablis, but nonetheless, the mineral and flint notes are still prevalent.

The bright acidity found in Chardonnay from this region mixed and 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.


Pairings:

Ideal with shellfish, oysters, grilled or fried fish and fish prepared with sauce.
