budburst + 2001 montagny 1er blanc buxynoise

caves buxynoise montagny 1er blanc

Ah, a warm weekend at last. So warm in fact that the vine in my garden started to burst its buds; that’s about five weeks later than the precocious Spring of 2007 – likewise it’s a more ‘normal’ Spring-time in the Côte d’Or – I’m looking forward to visiting in 2 weeks.

Did I mention it was warm? – Better open up something white…
2001 La Buxynoise, Montagny 1er try to find this wine...
Eleve en fûts de chêne in bold type on the label. Medium yellow colour. A subtle and quite sophisticated nose that has very faint brioche and very nice yellow-skinned citrus fruit. In the mouth it’s round and soft but with super acidity that leaves the flavour lingering. Great value, I could drink this all summer long, alfresco…
Rebuy – Yes
The acidity seems a little more shrill on day 2 – so drink on day 1 😉

    Great stuff this Bill from the Cave De Buxy. So far mine haven’t made it past year 3! The 05 is a stunner (for Montagny) and the 04 (now all drunk up) was lovely a year ago. If you in the area do try Ch de Cary Potet (on the road to Cluny just out of Buxy) The Les Bassets is a lovely drop.

    I don’t rate the red from Buxy co-op though. I;m not sure why. The exception used to be domaine Steinmayer but that’s sadly gone from the portfolio. The Rully and the Mercury I think are M. Juillot influenced so ought to be promising…

    Best
