Montagny

  • The vintage
    • 2020 is a solar vintage yet the wines show a lot of freshness and no flavours of over-ripeness. The winter was unusually warm with very little rainfall. Heavy frosts happened during spring although a very low level of humidity helped to protect the vines. After a 2nd cold period mid-May, summer was extremely dry aside from a few isolated storms (Nuits-Saint-Georges - Vougeot). The harvest started on August 19th, a historically early date and came to an end on September 1st.

      The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 4 weeks and takes place for a proportion of the musts (20%)in French oak barrels , 10% of which are new oak. The ageing period lasts 12 months with regular stirring whilst the rest of the blend is aged in vats. This allows the wine to develop delicate woody notes whilst conserving its freshness and distinctive character.
