Montagny 1er Cru 'Les Loges', Vieilles Vignes 2018
This lovely Montagny 1er Cru is a firm favourite of our customers. Montagny, like Saint-Véran, is one of those appellations of the Côte Chalonnaise that still provides lovely, rich white burgundy at agreeably affordable prices, in contrast to so many wines of the Côte d'Or just to its north. In the words of the late, great Auberon Waugh very good white burgundy, on the cheap. We last had this wine in stock in February this year when the 2016 finished. We waited for the 2018 to be available as we think that this is better than the 2017, and even than the 2016. It has a great balance of freshness and the weight and complexity we love about white burgundy.
How does the wine taste?
A fresh, lightly oaked wine with the weight, richness and complexity one expects from good white burgundy. Plenty of floral notes and a long finish. A delicious, lovely wine to drink with good food.
What do the critics say?
"The 2016 Les Loges Vieilles Vignes Montagny 1er Cru is an instantly appealing white burgundy of quite some panache produced at the highly regarded, 120 families strong, Vignerons de Buxy co-operative in the Côte Chalonnaise. One sip well, gulp and I was completely smitten. Only old, vine Chardonnay grown in the finest vineyards of Montagny is used, and its beautifully textured with decent weight, bright, fresh, zesty, citrusy fruit and a long, clean, really rather exhilarating mineral finish. If you like fine white burgundy and you like a bargain then this will be right up your street." (previous vintage)
