Montagny Premier Cru – Les Burnins
Tasting note :
Taking its name from the Benedictine monks of Cluny who, dressed in their monks habit (robe de bure) worked this parcel of vines. They had recognised it as one of the very best of the appellation.
Generous and complex, it is a great terroir.

The ‘must’ is racked after settling for 12 to 24 hours. The fermentation is temperature controlled.
