- Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014 Product #30082 (In Stock)
This beautiful Chardonnay comes from 25 year-old vines growing on limestone and clay soils in a 1 hectare slice of the respected Le Crets vineyard. Hand harvested grape bunches are destemmed and fermented and aged in tank and cask with 8 months spent on the fine lees to gain richness and depth.
Brilliantly clear and a light yellow-gold color (a hallmark of fine Montagny), the wine serves up beautiful aromas of chalky mineral, lime skin, toasted hazelnut, green tea, and garden flowers. On the palate, it's precise, transparent, and perfectly balanced with flavors of green apple, tangy peach, toasted nut and just a hint of fresh, creamy, butter. A touch of honey emerges with air as the peach/apple fruit gains strength, with brisk, lemony, acidity and chalky mineral showing on the crisp, generous, floral-scented, finish. Wonderfully sophisticated and pure already, this will sing with shellfish or raw tuna now and gain more richness over the next 2-4 years.
