Tasting notes: "From a newly acquired north-exposed parcel located at the southern limit of the Montagny appellation comes Cottenceau's inaugural 2021 Bourgogne Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless wine redolent of ripe citrus fruits, flowers, pastry and toasted almonds. Pure and fleshy, it's a lovely addition to the range that transcends the vintage." - 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.
