Montagny 1er Cru Les Chaniots
MONTAGNY 1er Cru is a white wine made from Chardonnay grapes.
This hillside vineyard is located above the villages of Jully les Buxy and Saint Vallerin, with an east-southeastward exposure. Brittle limestone and calcareous clay hillside. Black soils with little density and rock covered.
12 to 14 months in oak barrels.
The nose is dominated by floral hints which gradually give progress to honey and dried fruits (hazelnut). A full-bodied, elegant fine wine. The power of Chagnots combined with is richness usually makes it a very good wine for laying down.
Salmon or tuna tartar, codfish with mild spices, fish terrine, caramelised king prawns or sea food ravioli gratin, and delicate and refined dishes all pair perfectly with the finesse and richness of our Montagny 1er cru. The charolais veal with its white sauce, Bresse poultry, and cheeses (Comté, Beaufort, Emmental, goat) are also excellent accompaniments for this wine.
Best consumed within six to seven years after harvest.
