|Availability:||In stock (7)|
Montagny is the most southern of the Côte Chalonnaise villages and lies at the border of the Mâconnais. The chardonnay vines thrive in this rugged terrain. The vines face east/south-east and are planted on slopes that reach as high as 400 metres above sea level.
The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 4 weeks and takes place for a proportion of the musts (20%)in French oak barrels , 10% of which are new oak. The ageing period lasts 12 months with regular stirring whilst the rest of the blend is aged in vats. This allows the wine to develop delicate woody notes whilst conserving its freshness and distinctive character.
