Jean-Marc Boillot is an artist. His 2006 Montagny 1er Cru is simply perfect; not only for the standard of montagny wines. You can consider this simple montagny 1er cru as a really good top burgundy. The perfect and modest use of wood and the slightly smokeyness in the aftertaste, but above all freshness combined with elegance and persistance show his skills. Drink now and next year.
Extremely aromatic with floral and citrus; light-moderate yellow color. Little or no oak and light body. Great balance of citrus and fruit, but not bold enough for the roasted chicken meal. Compared with a classic CA oaked Chard and was amazed. This has darker color, WAY more nose, and fruitier and acidic taste.
Hay and grapefruit on the nose, with flowers and citrus fruit on the palate. Little noticeable oak, and were it not for the weight and slightly oily complexion, this might be mistaken for a Cali SB. Decent.
Very fresh, with hints of green in the glass. Extremely floral, with notes of fennel, pear syrup, and spice. Not showing much oak influence at all; tame acidity. While not complex, a very refreshing style of wine without excess cosmetic treatments.
