Domaine MAXIME COTTENCEAU Montagny Village "Les Preaux" 2021

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Chardonnay

Tasting notes: "Readers might be forgiven for imagining that all of Montangy is entitled to the premier cru appellation, so seldom is communal-level Montagny seen in export markets, yet Cottenceau's new 2021 Montagny Préaux demonstrates that there are indeed interesting sites to be explored here. From south-facing vines contiguous with his new, north-facing plot of Bourgogne Blanc, the resulting wine is ampler and fleshier, with a suave, satiny profile and attractive aromas of pear, baking spices and freshly baked bread." - 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 on.
