Vineyard Site: one of the four communes of the Côte Chalonnaise, also known as Region of Mercurey. Montagny is the southernmost appellation. The vineyards are planted on a series of hills in the shape of a horseshoe. Soil: limestone and clay. Viticulture Planting density: 10 000 stocks per hectare. Pruning: Guyot. Yield: 57 hl/ha, low on purpose, in order to reveal every nuance from the terroir. Vinification Supply: grapes and must are purchased from vineyard owners who are trusted supply partners. Very slow pressing, to respect fruit. The juices from the last pressings are not used. The wine goes directly into barrels after "débourbage" (decanting of white wine to reduce sediment). Ageing Type: in barrels (20% in new oak). Length: 6 to 8 months. Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage. Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin "Montagny is a very interesting wine, not just a simple "terroir wine". Its colour is pale. On the nose, aromas of golden apple, almond and fern, with a faint lemony note. There is a clear-cut and lively impression when first tasting the wine, followed by a feeling of roundness. Long aftertaste, with appetizing flavors of "compote" (stewed fruit)". Vintage Exceptional weather conditions gave a very healthy crop of high quality. White wines show a very pleasant balance. They deliver aromas of flowers and ripe fruits. Winemaker's notes (Jun 2021)

Despite the size of their vineyard holding, not all Drouhin's wines come from their own domaine, but most of the other wines do come from long-term contracts, such as exists with the Marquis de Laguiche wines. In all but name these wines are 'Domaine' wines, and the vineyards are cared for and the wines vinified with exactly the same care.
