Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte Chalonnaise
Village Montagny
Classification 1er Cru

As usual it's a délice. Sweet-fruited, but also nicely balanced and with a good undertow of mineral freshness. Great value. Drinking range: 2016 - L&S (Nov 2015)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Usually a relative bargain. Lightly reductive nose. Clean and crisp on the palate, but I suspect if I tasted this wine with a supermarket label on it, I would not be knocked out. Seems a little simple at the moment but perhaps it will develop more interest in bottle. Drinking range: 2016 - 2018 Rating: 15.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - (Jan 2016)

The 2014 Montagny 1er Cru from Jean-Marc Boillot has a strict, perhaps slightly conservative bouquet with bruised apple and smoky aromas, but never quite taking off as I might have expected. The palate is well balanced and offers more than the aromatics with attractive peach and Cornice pear notes, well judged acidity and just the right amount of salinity on the straightforward finish. Drink over the next 4-6 years. Drinking range: 2016 - 2023 Rating: 87 Neal Martin, (Jan 2016)

(an assemblage of parcels; Boillot buys grapes and juice): Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of peach, apricot and lemon are joined by a suggestion of exotic fruits on the fresh, musky nose. Saline and reasonably dense, with a touch of sweetness nicely countered by acidity. Shows a slightly candied hint of mirabelle. Rating: 86-88 Stephen Tanzer, (Sep 2015)

Jean-Marc Boillot

Alongside the wines from his own vineyards, Jean-Marc also runs a successful négociant business, vinifying wines from the Côte Chalonaise with huge success, as well as other vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. In Montagny in particular, the wine is the best we have found in the appellation, and remarkably consistent from year to year.
