The appellation of Montagny lies approximately 30 kilometres to the south of Beaune in the rolling folds and hills of the southern part of the Cote Chalonnaise. Montagny is a 100% white wine appellation originating solely from Chardonnay grapes and giving a fresh white wine that is an uncomplicated representation of its parent grape variety. The high quality of the vines is a direct consequence of their limestone bedrock and admirably oriented slopes. The vineyard of<< La Grande Roche >> is quite high up on the hillsides, catching plenty of sunshine which aids the great concentration of flavours in the grapes.

Our Montagny 1er Cru "La Grande Roche" 2016 shows a pale yellow color with bright reflections. The nose is very floral with aromas of honeysuckle and white hawthorn. Ample in the mouth, of a beautiful roundness, notes of white fruits appear with a peppery finish.
