The Montagny appellation includes 51 Premiers Crus « climats ». Producing communes : Montagny, Buxy, Saint-Vallerin, Jully-lès-Buxy.
Montagny produces white wines only. To the eye, these wines present the classic features of a burgundian Chardonnay : limpid, pale gold colour with green highlights when young, darker gold colour with age. Their aromas are acacia, mayflower, honeysuckle, bramble flowers, and sometimes violet and bracken. Of the livelier scents, lemon-balm and gun-flint may be added. Hazelnut, white peach and ripe pear would not be surprising, either. In the mouth, the wine is always fresh, young at heart, frisky, alluring, and rich in spicy back-flavours. Refinement and delicacy are harmoniously matched to a durably well-built sructure.
