2014 Domaine Faiveley Montagny Blanc (Previously 25)

SKU #1285571 Wine Enthusiast

 This is an attractive fruity wine with citrus fruits and a tangy, zesty texture. The lightest hint of wood gives the wine extra richness. It is already drinkable. (RV)  (8/2016)

Wine Spectator

 A brisk, elegant style, offering lemon curd, apple and light spice flavors, this tails off slightly, but lingers with subtle elements of citrus and spice. Drink now through 2020. 191 cases imported. (BS, Web-2017)

K&L Notes

Allen Meadows reports on the 2014 vintage from Faiveley: "Last year just after the harvest Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet described 2014 as a 'great vintage in white and a very good one in red.' Now that a year has passed and the wines have had a chance to further develop, they still call 2014 great vintage in white but they have also upgraded their collective view of the reds and now believe that they are merit being called 'great, at least in the Cote de Nuits but the late June hail storm rendered things much more challenging in the Cote de Beaune...As to the wines, they have definitely surprised us by how much they have improved during the course of their elevage and if there's one word we would use to describe them it would be purity. They have everything they need to age well plus they are incredibly transparent to the underlying terroir. The 2014s should very much please those who enjoy classically styled burgundies.'"

A delicious bottle of white Burgundy, this has clean, focused citrus fruit and a notable mineral underpinning. For under $20, you are getting a wonderful wine from a classic white Burgundy vintage in 2014. And I would add that this wine just tastes tres, tres Frahnch....

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
