Tasting Notes

One of the least-explored areas of Burgundy is in the Côte Chalonnaise in the south of the region. The comes from the village of Montagny and is a white Burgundy made from older vines of Chardonnay.

Staff Pick Notes

This Montagny "Le Clou" from Domaine de Clos Salomon is everything that I love about white Burgundy. From the beautiful, rich texture to the aroma and palette, this wine seriously delivers. Chardonnay is made all over the place, but I think that it shows best in Burgundy, its homeland. From old vine Chardonnay in Montagny, in the Côte Chalonnaise, this under the radar appellation is home to both fantastic wines and great value.

Pair with poultry, creamy sauces, and rich cheeses. Sublime!
