Montagny is a top appellation of Côte Châlonnaise in southern Burgundy. So good are its wines, that all are Premier Cru. We love the whites from the Berthenet family. From first pressings, this flagship 2021 is creamy, yet fresh with pear fruit.
The Berthenet family has been growing grapes for almost 400 years. The current estate, now complete with winery, was only established in 1974. The founder Jean-Pierre initially supplied grapes to the local co-op, but in 2001, with the help of his son, François, Guide Hachette Winemaker of the Year 2020, they took the brave step of making the wine themselves. They've never looked back. Nearly all the 20 hectares of vines grow Chardonnay, with a small portion of Aligoté and Pinot Noir. They favour sustainable methods in the vineyard, the first to do so in the appellation, grassing over between the rows and working to bring the soil to life. Aged 10 months on lees, the family's flagship, first-pressings Montagny is lush, creamy and textured.
"Lovely freshness in this fine vintage flagship Montagny from Guide Hachette Winemaker of the Year"
