Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "The 2019 Montagny 1er Cru Les Vignes Longues opens in the glass with notes of pear, white flowers, citrus zest and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, bright and satiny, it's lively and precise, with good depth at the core and a saline, mouthwatering finish. This is another outstanding effort from Cottenceau." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery:
Maxime Cottenceau studied viticulture and oenology in Beaune while working alongside the talented Vincent Dureuil from Domaine Dureuil-Janthial in Rully. After three years with him, Maxime settled back in his hometown of Buxy, just south of Givry in the Cote Chalonnaise, to take over the family estate. Maxime immediately put a stop to the use of herbicides, cultivating the soils and began organic conversion in 2020. Needless to say, all cellar work and vineyard work are done following the lunar cycles in true Biodynamic style. A truly exciting domain that is worth following up.
