Matthew Jukes, December 2020,
Super-precise and bursting with crunchy acidity and stony freshness, this is a marvellously energetic wine with a perfect nose and pretensions to a creamy palate. A great wine for short to medium term love and wonderfully blessed with Boillot’s stylish touch, this is a lip-smacking wine and it is stunning value, too.
Situated to the south of the Côte Chalonnaise in Burgundy, Montagny is an all white wine appellation. The wines have a good balance of body and acidity and the best can be described as "mini-Meursaults". Historically all wines could be classified as Premier Cru if they contained alcohol of 11.5% or higher. Today the vineyards of Montagny are classified similar to other appellations based on their terroir and positioning, with almost two-thirds being eligible for Premier Cru status.
