Montagny 1er Cru, Burgundy

£27.75
Quantity:

Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-LèsBeaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer, which include some particularly well-sited vineyards.

Tasting Notes:

Richly vibrant white burgundy, offering characteristic aromas of red apple and grilled nuts, and a creamy texture on the palate cut with some citrus freshness. Lovely balance and length complete this fine expression of the Henri de Villamont style.

Press :- “Smooth, creamy and round, this ripe wine features appealing spice, toast and delicious fruitiness. It has an attractive layer of tannin along with firm minerality, adding structure, hints of wood and a finely textured character. Bright and fruity at the end, it will be ready from 2016.” –
