From a densely planted 2 hectares in Montagny, which Bruno refers to as part of the “forgotten beauty of Burgundy”. Fully south facing, deep clay dominant soils, 40 year old vines, and zero new oak. Again, I tasted the ’17, but the essential character of the vineyard DNA is the same….Quite rich aromatically, “le plus sudiste” says Bruno (the most south facing, solar character of the range). In the mouth, it is also quite rich in yellow fruits, but then WHOOP! it is precise, ever rising in perfume, and fine, balanced “sur un fil” (on a thread/wire). Quite impressive….
“Lorenzon’s 2017 Montagny 1er Cru Les Truffières is a beauty, bursting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of crisp green pear, oyster shell, fresh peach and a delicate top note of fennel. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and succulent, with a layered, enveloping core. It’s the most charming, open-knit wine in the range and is already hard to resist. This bottling demonstrates that no one is pushing quality further in Montagny than Lorenzon.” 92 William Kelley for the 2017, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE
