A discreet, elegant white Burgundy here from the Côte Châlonnaise, with barely detectable oak, inviting white flower...

The village of Montagny is located within the Côte de Chalonnaise, a region in the south of Burgundy where only white wine can bear the village's name. The 1er cru status is an indication of greater ripeness of the fruit and higher resultant alcohol.

It's drinking well now and shows notes of crisp apple, pear and the slightest butter-cream character. It will also continue to develop in the bottle for up to 5 years over which the ripe citrus characteristics will give way to a softer mouth-feel.. but it's soooo good right now and what a steal for under $25!
