The appellation of Montagny lies approximately 30 kilometres to the south of Beaune in the rolling folds and hills of the southern part of the Côte Chalonnaise. Montagny is a 100% white wine appellation originating solely from Chardonnay grapes and giving a fresh white wine that is an uncomplicated representation of its parent grape variety. The high quality of the vines is a direct consequence of their limestone bedrock and admirably oriented slopes. The vineyard of “La Grande Roche” is quite high up on the hillsides, catching plenty of sunshine which aids the great concentration of flavours in the grapes.
The soil in the vineyards of Montagny is of limestone, chalk and clay
The average age of the vines are 35 years with an average yield of 40 hl/ha.
Harvested by hand.
Montagny 1er Cru “La Grande Roche” is a bright, light golden colour, with a complex nose with peach aromas and hints of muscat. Ample and floral in the mouth, it reveals iodine and peppery notes. Lots of freshness on the finish.
