Bouchard Montagny Premier Cru 2014
This is a glorious Chardonnay from Premier Cru vineyards in Montagny, in the Cote Chalonnaise. A higher-than-usual proportion (approximately two-thirds) of the vineyards in Montagny are classified as Premier Cru and as such, they usually keep it simple and exclude the name of the vineyard on the bottle. Montagny produces exclusively white burgundy and is known for barrel fermented/aged whites with more body and acidity than other Cote Chalonnaise thanks to its sunny climate and limestone soils. Bouchard is one of the top negocients in Burgundy, producing this seriously good example of Montagny Premier Cru.
