Product description

Montagny Les Bassets 1er Cru is the flagship wine of the domaine. The vineyard lies near the commune of Buxy with the lower portion classified as village and the upper portion classified as premier cru. The 5.8-acre upper portion belongs entirely to Laurent Cognard. The vineyard has an eastern exposure with limestone soil and an average vine age of 25 years. The wine is aged in a combination of 10% new 228-liter Burgundian pièce and 500-liter puncheons. White wines from the Côte Chalonnaise are sometimes leaner and tarter than those from the Côte de Beaune despite being further south. The hilly terrain draws in cool westerly winds which delays ripening and brings freshness to the wines. Limestone soils give an underpinning of minerality and oak aging lends warmth and texture.
