Montagny 1er Cru, Domaine du Clos Salomon 2016
One of our bestselling White Burgundies which always delivers on quality and price.
The known history of this estate goes back about 700 years, but today Clos Salomon is a partnership between the most recent heir to the estate, Ludovico du Gardin, and his winemaker, Fabrice Perrotto. Fabrice, an outsider to the family, started working with the estate in 1990 and was added into partnership not too long after the passing of Ludovico’s father. It is an unusual arrangement for someone outside of a family to be given rights to the land and title of a family estate in France. It shows how much Ludovico believes in the ability and commitment of Fabrice. They are both very conscious about treatments in their vineyards and don’t use any insecticides or herbicides and all of the work is done by hand.
The vineyards of this estate lie in one of Burgundy’s less well-known areas, the Côte Chalonnaise. There are five communes (Bouzeron, Rully, Mercury, Givry and Montagny) with varying production between sparkling, white and red, depending on the commune.
Montagny produces only white wine from the Chardonnay grape. On the palate of this greenly hued and fresh wine you will find classic Chardonnay characters of toast and spice followed by subtle notes of allspice and nutmeg. This wine is laced with flavours of flowers, acacia honey, herbs, soft white fruits and notes of almond and hazelnut. Drink now orover the next 4-5 years.
