Domaine Faiveley Montagny Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Family owned for 7 generations, Faiveley has an awesome selection of vineyards in pretty much all areas of Burgundy. Their traditional strengths are in the Cotes de Nuits and Mercurey however recent purchases in the Cotes de Beaune have widened their appeal. 80% of their grape requirements are sourced from their own vineyards. The grapes are pressed and vinified on site in Mercurey. Then the wine is brought to Nuits St Georges to be raised. Only a small part of the cuvée is matured in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months. This allows the wine to acquire delicate woody notes, without masking the liveliness and character sought after in the white wines from Côte Chalonnaise. The 'Montagny Blanc ' has a brilliant pale yellow colour. The nose expresses fresh, floral and mineral scents. This wine is rather frisky on the palate giving a nice sensation of freshness. Its acidity and concentration come together well, to give this wine good balance and pleasant long-lasting aromas and flavours.
