2020 MONTAGNY, 1er Cru Grappe D’Or, Feuillat-Juillot

Bin:  216

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Montagny is in the Châlonnais sub region, that much overlooked area between the Côte D’Or and the Mâconnais. The wines tend to show a balance of styles between those more famous neighbours – some of the seriousness and intensity of the former and some of the easy-drinking charm of the latter.
Les Grappes d’Or is blend of several different premier crus on chalky soils, from vines up to 70 years old..
and i.

Grape variety:

100% Chardonnay, fermented and matured 40% in 500 litre barrels, 60% in stainless steel.

Producer:

From the website of agent Thorman Hunt:
“Françoise Feuillat-Juillot is the daughter of the highly regarded Mercurey producer, Michel Juillot. She grew up amongst the vines and barrels of her family domaine, before studying in Paris and completing a degree in oenology at Dijon University.
She now has 14 hectares of wonderfully sited, mainly old vines, spread amongst 13 different premier crus in the viticultural amphitheatre that is Montagny. She practices a very strict and meticulous form of sustainable viticulture, works the soils mechanically and all grapes are picked by hand.”

Old Bridge rating:

A perfect example of the region. Not showy, but serious and elegant.
