Notes: Jean-Marc purchases fruit from a friend who owns a parcel of 110-year-old vines in this well-situated premier cru, and from it he crafts a rich wine that also reflects the cut and stoniness typical of this appellation. Whereas a vigneron of Montagny might have left the wine in cuve, Pillot takes advantage of the concentration resulting from the old vines and ages it entirely in previously used barrels, bottling it after an 18-month élevage—the same length of aging as his more expensive offerings from the Côte de Beaune. 

Smoky aromas reveal notes of just sliced apple, pear, acacia blossom and a hint of tangerine peel. The delicious medium-bodied flavors possess notably better mid-palate volume thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract, while delivering excellent depth and length on the youthfully austere, long and markedly dry finale. This is an excellent Montagny and definitely worth considering.
