2017 MONTAGNY, 1er Cru, Jean-Marc Boillot. Burgundy
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Montagny is one of the appellations in the little-known Châlonnais region, south of the Côte de Beaune but north of Mâcon. The style is between the 2 - some of the intensity of the former, with much of the easy-drinking quality of the latter.
Producer: Jean-Marc Boillot was born into a family of vignerons in Volnay in 1951. A family disagreement in 1984 prompted him to leave the family domaine and until 1988 he served as winemaker for the négociant Olivier Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet. From 1985 he also began producing his own wines. The domaine’s headquarters were established at his grandfather´s house, “La Pommardière”, a dignified property next to the Château de Pommard. The most important stage in the accumulation of holdings was reached with the assertion of his right to one third of the Domaine Etienne Sauzet in Puligny-Montrachet in 1993. (Sauzet’s only daughter Colette had married Jean Boillot, making the three Boillot children Jean-Marc, Henri and Janine entitled to an equal share of the Sauzet estate). He has 11.5 hectares in total.
