Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte Chalonnaise
Village Montagny
Classification 1er Cru
ABV 13.5%

Lydie's 2018 has immediate impact with good weight on the palate. The fruit is really quite intense. It is a Montagny with the volume turned up! This is gently spicy with some good tropical notes and a nice richness, but not fat up front. Deep and nice phenolic weight. A broad sweep of fruit that neatly tightens up on the finish. A true crowd pleasing Burgundy! L&S (Nov 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A bit mealy and unfocused initially but with excellent tension, reduction and – possibly – a little dissolved carbon dioxide to give it energy? Few would be disappointed by this, though it’s slightly smoke and mirrors. Drinking range: 2022 - 2028 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - 2020)

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.
