Aged exclusively in large oak vats, this is a rich and full-bodied white that will develop further complexity for up to 8 years from vintage if properly stored. Allow the wine to come up a little in temperature from the fridge, ideally 10-12 degrees, to fully appreciate the depth and complexity of this fine white. Pale gold in colour when young, the nose is led by citrus, melon and pear with hints of butterscotch, honeysuckle, candied lemon and even a wisp of menthol. The palate is supple and minerally and is a masterful accompaniment to fish dishes.
Montagny boasts 49 premier cru vineyards, with the name of the vineyard appending the Premier Cru where grapes are exclusively from there. Les Coères is located in an ampitheatre of hills within Montagny, part of the Côte Chalonnaise, at an altitude of 300-400 metres, ensuring more temperate conditions for ripening. The terrain is brittle, high in limestone and dense with rocks and pebbles - perfect for Chardonnay.
Vignerons de Buxy was founded as a cooperative of 98 growers in 1931, with most of the family vineyards remaining involved today. This tight and exclusive member network ensures access to increasingly more sought after grapes where demand consistently exceeds supply.
