Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : In the Côte Chalonnaise, South of Côte de Beaune, this Premier Cru "terroir" of Montagny displays the fruit and mineral qualities of Chardonnay.
The Vintage 2018 : After a rainy winter, spring started with a very warm episode in April followed by very cold températures in May. The warm weather settled down early June. The summer was punctuated by several heat waves which engendered a lack of water, compensated by the presence of clay in many plots. The harvest started end of August, in outstanding conditions with grapes fully ripe and healthy. The white wines are precise with a beautiful fruit combination.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with pale fleshed fruit aromas on a hint of minerality. Well structured, very pure fruit. Precise texture. Long aftertaste. SCORE : 90/100 WINE ENTHUSIAST - 90/100 GUIDE DES MEILLEURS VINS DE FRANCE
Food pairing : Suitable for most occasions. Food parings include pâté, lobsters and poultry, as well as many goat cheeses.
