Tasting Notes
Compact, dense, white and stone fruit nose with lots of white nuts, peach and baked citrus. Takes 15 minutes to unpack pear, lemon and genty spiced vanilla. Beautiufllyt structured and well weighted, neither heavy not faint. White nuts and a gentle chalkiness linger on an elegant and textured finish.

A Glass of Facts

Whilst 2018 may well be Aline Beauné’s first ever solo vintage, she’s no stranger to winemaking in the Cote Chalonnaise. For 15 years she has been heading up the winemaking for Château de la Crée (a domaine based in nearby Santenay) when a few years ago she decided it was time to do it all herself. So when the Buxy co-operative’s lease on 5ha of her families 12ha of Montagny vines came to an end she jumped at the chance. Her 5ha are found in the commune of Saint-Vallerin and are split between; 12.5% Aligoté, 25% Bourgogne Blanc, 50% Montagny Villages and 12.5% Montagny 1er cru Chazelle
