Domaine MAXIME COTTENCEAU Montagny Village "Sous les Roches" 2020
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "Scents of orchard fruit, waxy citrus zest, white flowers and nutmeg preface Cottenceau's 2020 Montagny 1er Cru Sous Roche, a medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping wine with a satiny attack that segues into a bright, racy mid-palate, concluding with a saline finish. It's even better than the superb 2019." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery: Maxime Cottenceau studied viticulture and oenology in Beaune while working alongside the talented Vincent Dureuil from Domaine Dureuil-Janthial in Rully. After three years with him, Maxime settled back in his hometown of Buxy, just south of Givry in the Cote Chalonnaise, to take over the family estate. Maxime immediately put a stop to the use of herbicides, cultivating the soils and began organic conversion in 2020. Needless to say, all cellar work and vineyard work are done following the lunar cycles in true Biodynamic style. A truly exciting domain that is worth following up on.
