100% White Wines
The Montagny appellation is located in the southern part of the Côte Chalonnaise, on 3.10 square kilometers producing only white wines. It is one of the sub-regions of Burgundy situated in East of France.
This vineyard, the most southern of this zone, is installed on sloping slopes of the Bajocian, rising to 400 meters of altitude. The soils of marls or marl-limestone lias and trias are a perfect terroir for the grape variety Chardonnay. Also, the exposure is beneficial to the vines, which are oriented towards the east and south-east. Fifty-two climates are entitled to Premier Cru’s status, including The Old Castle, Pindances, Coères, Burnins, or Montcuchot, for the most famous.
Remarkable Finesse Since 1936
Some climates, producing very little juice, assemble the wines between them to regroup under Montagny Premier Cru. The Montagny is characterized by an intense minerality that represents them and aromas of fern and hazelnut. On the palate, they are fresh and rich in aromas of spices. They offer a perfect balance between a durable and structured framework and a delicacy and remarkable finesse. These are whites, sometimes a little austere at a young age, but gaining power after a few years.
The AOC Montagny was created in 1936.
