2020 Village Montagny, Vignerons de Buxy
2020 Village Montagny, Vignerons de Buxy
"For lovers of modestly priced white burgundy, we’ve the extremely toothsome 2020 Vignerons de Buxy Montagny from an excellent Côte Chalonnaise co-operative."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine.
Meursault and Montrachet, we've all heard of these two iconic Burgundy villages which between them produce some of the most sought after and expensive white wines in the world. They may even grab the headlines, but for me its a third Burgundian M, Montagny, that should be found in every chardonnay fan's wine rack. In terms of pure enjoyment, value and affordability, Montagny is extremely hard to beat.
This Village Montagny is made with the same care and attention to detail as their Premier Cru wines - Les Chaniots and Les Coéres - and is a blend from grapes grown across all of their Montagny vineyard plots. The resulting wine is wonderfully fruity, rounded and pure Burgundian in character. Montagny is situated in the south of the Côte Chalonnaise, and is named after the nearby town of Chalon-sur-Saône. The wines here certainly give their more illustrious neighbours to the north in the Côte-d'Or a real run for their money. The vineyards lie on limestone soils which give the zippy freshness. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks which helps lock in that freshness and enhance the beautiful purity of fruit.
There's a lovely, light golden shimmer in the glass with vibrant aromas of citrus and stone-fruit. The palate follows suit with ripe exotic stone-fruit, citrus and an elegant, herbaceous, almost spicy edge and a good length to the finish. There's a real freshness and zip to the palate, yet it still retains a texture and weight which we particularly enjoyed. It certainly is a really delicious glass of white Burgundy from this consistently excellent producer, and great value to boot.
