 Tasted by wine-strategies on 3/15/2014: Chalky, with saline-tinged orchard fruits, light spice and surprising freshness. Excellent starter wine that's clean and rewarding; perfect for a seafood/pasta salad or with light apps. At just $20, this is damn good QPR. 13,0% abv, drink now (2208 views)
 Tasted by Anthony Chinn on 1/25/2013 & rated 88 points: Citrus, not much mineral. A bit alcoholic. But for the price, nice wine, no off notes. (2774 views)
 Tasted by sgwolff on 11/12/2012 & rated 85 points: Crisp, slightly tart...pronounced apple and flowers...well balanced acid. Overall, very nice...perfect match for turkey this holiday season. (3153 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 11/4/2012: My last bottle of 15 consumed, still excellent. Wish that I had more! (3162 views)
 Tasted by David J Cooper on 7/23/2012 & rated 91 points: Light yellow. Very floral, lemon, mineral and almond nose. Dry citrus flavours and a lemon acid finish. I love these wines. (3721 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 7/2/2012: Probably should be drunk up yet for an afternoon tipple still rather delicious -- smokey, rich in fruit, a bit thin on the finish but I played through anyway. (2688 views)
 Tasted by eyewell on 6/1/2012 & rated 91 points: Great value white burgundy (1662 views)
 Tasted by Christion on 1/20/2012 & rated 89 points: Great wine from southern burgundy! Nice nose, a little bit dominated by the oak. However, on the second day, the nice exotic fruit, pear and green apple of a classic burgundy Chardonnay really comes though. The great thing about this wine is its minerality. It is already overwhelming in the nose and really continues onto the pallette. While I was thinking about deduction some points because of the wine's slight oakiness, the minerality made most of that up. Also, the wine has quite some length and a really refreshing finish. This will show nicely over the next 2-4 years. (2018 views)
 Tasted by skoppel on 4/21/2011 & rated 88 points: Upgraded score as the acicity in this bottle was more subdued leading to a nice balance. A nice bottle of burgundy at a great price point. Good value for everyday drinking. (3401 views)
 Tasted by skoppel on 3/7/2011 & rated 85 points: OK, but not quite a 90. Nice mouth feel, but still fairly acidic so it was hard to get to the fruit. I suppose it might calm down in time. but the fruit may be gone by then. This wine goes more to the citrus end of things, but with enough honey and butterscotch to keep it from being confused with a chablis. Needs food to complete it. A good buy at under $20 because of the complexity.

 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 1/15/2011: Clear medium lemon color.

Nose is clean with medium or typical chardonnay intensity. Its youthful, but showing (already) some signs of development -- a bit of earth and barrel come through the fruit aromas. Those aromas are slight and just minor notes.

Palate is dry, with medium or typical acidity. Unlike the Ente Meursault I am comparing to its body is a bit heavier, but its acidity is far less pronouced. The flavor intensity is medium, or expected from Montagny, with a richer, more ripe fruit character (again, only in comparison to Ente who must harvest very early_, with just bare notes of wood and secondary aromas showing through. The length is a veyr pleasant medium.

Overall this is a very good Montagny, especially at its price of $23. In fact, very tough to beat. When compare to the Ente Meursault which I am having alongside it the fruit is chunkier and it doesn't have as much minerality. However Ente is also x4 the price. So one would hope there is a difference. (3516 views)
 Tasted by winejnky on 11/6/2010 & rated 90 points: Price to value is very high; Nice melon/lemon fruit and acidity with classic Burgundy minerality. (3828 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 10/15/2010: Maybe the best bottle yet. Zingy lemon acidity, salt and butter, generous midpalate, strength and presence with persistent length. Really, really good wine and exceptional value. (3989 views)
 Tasted by JesperR on 10/10/2010 & rated 88 points: Light and crisp, yet concentrated and long.Very brilliant. Notes of lemon with refreshing pear. Drinking well now (3998 views)
 Tasted by winejnky on 7/9/2010 & rated 88 points: Lemon, tart apple & pear flavors balanced with light lemon/lime acidity. Very clean and refreshing, but a bit light versus last bottle. (4078 views)
 Tasted by winejnky on 5/1/2010 & rated 90 points: Lighter style, but showing pure expression of White Burgundy and drinking very well last night. In a fruit/mineral style with lighter structure and acidity. Refreshing on a warm spring evening. (4442 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 4/2/2010: What might be a perfect burgundy tipple -- touches of fruit, a dash of oak, dry with vibrant acid, and cheap. Just delicious at $26. (5012 views)
 Tasted by Badfish on 3/11/2010 & rated 90 points: Pale yellow with a tinge of green in the glass. There are delicate aromas of lemon oil, white flowers, heady minerals, and hints of almond as the wine warms. The nose is quite pretty with great purity although it is slightly reticent at first. There is good density to the flavors of citrus and melon and the texture is round but lively as the acidity lifts the fruit through the finish. I love the palate here as it has delicate flavors with crunchy minerals and a touch of lifted sweetness on the finish. The mineral presence on the palate is profound for this price point, what a value. (3871 views)
 Tasted by Maverick on 3/7/2010 & rated 89 points: lean and crisp with lemon zest. (4654 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 2/26/2010: Consistent note. Lemon oil, little salted butter. Happy to have many of these. (4732 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 2/25/2010: Just exactly what a white Burgundy should be, and at a great price!

Lemony and limey on the nose with hints of minerality. Lively, juicy acidis on the palate (say medium +) but with great balance to the texture of the fruit. I would guess that the fruit is actually quite heavy but brillant and forceful acidity brings it right into focus. Crisp, clean and youthful finish. Invigorating! At $26 its a steal. (4738 views)
 Tasted by ratmice on 1/23/2010: Mandy's birthday (4956 views)
 Tasted by WetRock on 12/18/2009: Friday at Jason's Office (Jason Hagen's office): Tight nose with a bit of sulfur. Clean and pretty. Good concentration. Would recommend a couple years in bottle at least or plenty of year. Excellent value @ ~$17. (5293 views)
 Tasted by chambolle on 11/11/2009: Very youthful straw color. The nose is a bit leesy and buttered popcorny, but mostly good fresh ripe fruit, the aroma of grapes in the sun, notes of pear and peach and lemon zest. On the palate, the elements of the wine have not yet come together -- you get a mouthful of ripe fruit at one instant, citrus peel the next, a blast of fruit acidity and "stoniness" the next. When all comes together, likely in a year or so, this will be even better, but it is very enjoyable in its slightly amped up way now. It doesn't necessarily shout "Montagny" at me -- it's a bit too generously open and lacks some of that quirky, unctuous peach pit quality I like in Chalonnaise whites. But God bless those maniacs at Vineyard Brands -- this hit the west coast retail market at about $15 bottle and at that, it's definitely a 'go to wine" that it is hard not to like. (5418 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 11/10/2009 & rated 89 points: Bright lemon color. Intense, creamy lemon butter bouqet, that's joined by crushed limestone, mint and tropical fruit. Ripe and broad flavors of lemon butter and pineapple with a touch of vanilla oak. Mineral upwheling on the tightly wound finish. Nice acidity with good vibrancy and cut. Drink now-2014. 89+ pts.

Jean-Marc Boillot Producer Website

En 1998, le domaine s’est étendu dans le Languedoc-Roussillon, où il produit une gamme de Vins de Pays d’Oc. Le Domaine est situé en zone d’appellations Pic Saint Loup, Coteau du Languedoc entre la Mer Méditerranée et les Cévennes.
Le vignoble est inséré dans un paysage de falaises calcaires et de garrigues.
Les sols sont argilo-calcaires, caillouteux, filtrants. Les écarts de températures diurnes et nocturnes favorisent l’élaboration de vins d’une grande finesse.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
