Montagny

  • The vintage
    • 2018 in an early ripening vintage. We began the harvests on the 27th of August in the Côte Chalonnaise with our Mercurey and in te Côte de beaune with our « Clos des Cortons Faiveley » Grand Cru. The harvests came to a close on the 15th of September. The vines displayed excellent health conditions, the clusters were dense and perfectly ripe. 2018 is a very classic vintage that can be enjoyed in its youth and is already drinking beautifully.

      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.
