Montagny Blanc 2014

Domaine Faiveley

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: The appellation of Montagny is located in the extreme south of the Cote Chalonnaise directly bordering the Maconnais. Vineyards here can sit as high as 1,000 feet in elevation and typically have an ideal east/ south-east exposure. Soils are primarily clay and marl.

Vinification: The grapes are hand-harvested and pressed and vinified on site in Faiveley's cellars in Mercurey. Following fermentation the wines are transported to the main cellars in Nuits-St Georges for aging. Aging takes place of a period of 10-12 months in a combination of neutral tank and oak barrels.

    A brisk, elegant style, offering lemon curd, apple and light spice flavors, this tails off slightly, but lingers with subtle elements of citrus and spice. Drink now through 2020.

    "Inviting aromas of white flowers and spices, with just a hint of apple. Supple and vinous, offering a tactile texture for this wine from 30-year-old vines planted on white marl soil that's similar in composition to that of Corton-Charlemagne. Finishes saline and firm."
